Nota del editor

Sincere examination…

A novel that reads more like a memoir, Heti’s “Motherhood” is an examination and then a cross-examination of herself, tackling the question that nags many women as their biological clocks tick down with honesty and sincerity.

Descripción

From the author of How Should a Person Be? ("one of the most talked-about books of the year"—Time Magazine) and the New York Times Bestseller Women in Clothes comes a daring audiobook about whether to have children.

In Motherhood, Sheila Heti asks what is gained and what is lost when a woman becomes a mother, treating the most consequential decision of early adulthood with the candor, originality, and humor that have won Heti international acclaim and made How Should A Person Be? required reading for a generation.

In her late thirties, when her friends are asking when they will become mothers, the narrator of Heti's intimate and urgent audiobook considers whether she will do so at all. In a narrative spanning several years, casting among the influence of her peers, partner, and her duties to her forbearers, she struggles to make a wise and moral choice. After seeking guidance from philosophy, her body, mysticism, and chance, she discovers her answer much closer to home.

Motherhood is a courageous, keenly felt, and starkly original audiobook that will surely spark lively conversations about womanhood, parenthood, and about how—and for whom—to live.

    An intense and interesting book. I could relate very well to the hesitation and indecision, as I have been struggling with that as well.

    It was a great but and so needed for those that have not felt an innate instinct to be a mother or are unsure they ever want to be. I would love to see more discussion about this topic and books relating to childfree/childless living.
