Recommended for every artist, every woman and everyone who wants something more for themselves- something that takes work and thought. Heti knows how to "Write what you know," and does it with grace, grit and insight. Because the story and characters are authentically her own, her writing succeeds at being flawlessly experimental, original and informative. I want to savor this book again and again.

Hard to put a finger on why her short stories are so engrossing. But I was captivated the entire time. The characters, the real inclinations they have and the observations each bar narrator makes are all experiences we wouldn't be able to absorb anywhere but Munro's words.

Once again I'm reminded of all the things that writing can do that's difficult for film to achieve. Lerner's painting of unverbalized intentions, beyond those revealed via internal monologue is a beautiful portrayal of the real human mind.
