Motherhood

by Sheila Heti

Our unnamed heroine, a writer but more a thinker, endlessly contemplates the pros and cons of becoming a mother. Her musings cover the lives of her own mother and her maternal grandmother. Narrated in a continual monologue - a style I really enjoyed - however, don't expect much action or even a decision! Thought provoking and unusual.

Then can a woman who makes books be let off the hook
by the universe for not making the living thing we call babies?
yes
