Publisher's Synopsis

'A response - finally - to the new norms of femininity' Rachel Cusk

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.

'Likely to become the defining literary work on the subject' Guardian
'Courageous, necessary, visionary' Elif Batuman
'Quietly affecting... As concerned with art as it is with mothering' Sally Rooney
'Groundbreaking in its fluidity' Spectator

**A Daily Telegraph, Financial Times, Irish Times, Refinery29, TLS and The White Review Book of the Year **
