"Motherhood" is a funny and important read on the desire to have children

By:

Canadian writer and author Sheila Heiti tackles the topic of motherhood and the societal expectations that go along with it. 

More and more women are grappling with the question, "Should I have kids?" Here, Toronto-based author Sheila Heti attempts to answer that question (at least for herself) in her new novel, aptly titled Motherhood.

Plenty of queries, a coin-toss answering system and conversations about work, legacy and partnership abound. Playfully and thoughtfully working through this issue, Heti has a unique writing style that is a pleasure to read and invites rumination.

Motherhood (Knopf Canada) by Sheila Heti, $30.
