Publisher's Summary

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, the question of whether she will do so at all. Over the course of several years, under the influence of her partner, her body, her family, mysticism and chance, Heti's narrator struggles to make a wise and meaningful choice. 

In the semi-diaristic mode of a woman in conversation with herself, Motherhood raises radical and essential questions, including whether this pivotal decision can even be considered ‘a decision’ at all.

Not Interesting, reads like a hipster novel.

Self-involved, fretful, whining, and boring as hell. I was very much looking forward to this book but have thrown in the towel. Apologies to all who have enjoyed it, as many of my friends have.
