ISBN: 9780099592846 Category: Tags: ,


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.
