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.

'Earthy and philosophical and essential ...'
The New York Times

'Motherhood is a fiercely intelligent and probing read that delves deep into the fundamentals of procreating, motherhood and what it means to be a woman in today’s world ...'
The Irish Times

'Motherhood is self-examination elevated to an art form … beautifully written and profound.'
The Scotsman
