Motherhood

**A Daily Telegraph, Financial Times and TLS Book of the Year 2018**

A provocative novel about the desire and duty to procreate, from the author of the critically acclaimed How Should A Person Be?

Motherhood treats one of the most consequential decisions of early adulthood - whether or not to have children - with the intelligence, wit and originality that have won Sheila Heti international acclaim.

Having reached an age when most of her peers are asking themselves when they will become mothers, Heti's narrator considers, with the same urgency, whether she will do so at all. Over the course of several years, under the influence of her partner, body, family, friends, mysticism and chance, she struggles to make a moral and meaningful choice.

In a compellingly direct mode that straddles the forms of the novel and the essay, Motherhood raises radical and essential questions about womanhood, parenthood, and how - and for whom - to live.
Rezension
"Earthy and philosophical and essential ... Motherhood floats, as did Heti's excellent novel How Should a Person Be?, somewhere between fiction and nonfiction. It reads like an inspired monologue ... Heti's semi-fiction, like that of writers like Ben Lerner, Rachel Cusk and Teju Cole, among others, is dismantling our notions of what a novel should be ... She deals out her ideas in no-nonsense form, as if she were pulling espresso shots ... This book is endlessly quotable, and a perfect review would be nothing but quotations. She makes a banquet of her objections to parenthood. If you are an underliner, as I am, your pen may go dry ... Indeed, Heti always seems to be drawing from a paranormally deep well ... Funny ... Cannily employed." Dwight Garner The New York Times
