Motherhood

Author
Sheila Heti 
Summary
<b>From the author of <i>How Should a Person Be? </i>(“one of the most talked-about books of the year”—<i>Time Magazine</i>) and the <i>New York Times</i> Bestseller <i>Women in Clothes</i> comes a daring novel about whether to have children.</b><br /><b></b><br /><b></b>In <i>Motherhood, </i>Sheila Heti asks what is gained and what is lost when a woman becomes a mother, treating the most consequential decision of early adulthood with the candor, originality, and humor that have won Heti international acclaim and made <i>How Should A Person Be?</i> required reading for a generation.<br /><br />In her late thirties, when her friends are asking <i>when </i>they will become mothers, the narrator of Heti’s intimate and urgent novel considers whether she will do so at all. In a narrative spanning several years, casting among the influence of her peers, partner, and her duties to her forbearers, she struggles to make a wise and moral choice. After seeking guidance from philosophy, her body, mysticism, and chance, she discovers her answer much closer to home.<br /><br /><i>Motherhood </i>is a courageous, keenly felt, and starkly original novel that will surely spark lively conversations about womanhood, parenthood, and about how—and for whom—to live.
