Motherhood | Sheila Heti | Henry Holt and Co.


A Novel

Sheila Heti


From the author of How Should a Person Be? (“one of the most talked-about books of the year”—Time Magazine) and the New York Times Bestseller Women in Clothes comes a daring novel about whether to have children.

“Unlike anything else I’ve read. Sheila Heti has broken new ground, both in her maturity as an artist and in the possibilities of the female discourse itself.”
—Rachel Cusk

“I read this novel more quickly and eagerly than any I’ve read in ages. Sheila Heti’s simple, elegant sentences invariably give pleasure; her thinking is incisive and wholly original…”
—Adelle Waldman

“Reading this beautiful novel, I felt I was watching a brilliant mind invent new tools for thinking. Motherhood is a thrilling, very funny, and almost unbearably moving book”
—Garth Greenwell
