Motherhood - Sheila Heti

Staff Pick

Imagine Sheila Heti’s last book, How Should A Person Be?, mixed with Jenny Offill’s Dept. of Speculation and the I Ching, and you already know what reading Motherhood is like. Confusing, charming, and heartbreaking in equal measure, Heti’s maybe-a-novel takes us deep into the thoughts of a writer debating, you got it, motherhood. Whether she’s interpreting her dreams or holding a friend’s baby, flipping coins at her desk or smoking with strangers on book tour, the unnamed narrator is honest, relatable, and perfectly voiced. I loved spending time in her head.
