Fiction • 5.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Author/narrator Sheila Heti offers an honest account of the impact of motherhood and the decisions that go with it. She uses the stories of others and her own candid thoughts on whether or not to have children. In a clear and contemplative tone, Heti boldly confronts positive and negative aspects of motherhood, its effects on individuality and expression, and the possibilities inherent in not having children. Although she often sounds meek, her personal thoughts and analysis on the idea of motherhood read like a diary filled with innovative points of view and amusing anecdotes. In her honest and intimate work, Heti attempts to answer her own internal questions on what a woman gives up and gains, depending on which path she takes.
