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? 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.
Add love letter to the list of what Motherhood is. She tracks a clear trajectory of matriarchal pain. Sensuous and velvety. Her creative process doubles as an attempt to work out her own feelings on the subject. The result is a book that is eclectic and compelling, a rare account of how a woman might sidestep what is, for many, a defining life event: Unspooling the raw details of random chance, her romantic relationship, her maternal ancestors, her friends, her soul, and most importantly, her art, the novel deepens in feeling until the very last page.
A major work and a must-read for anyone interested in musings on motherhood. This topic is finally tackled as if it were the most important decision in your life. Because, um.
How lucky are we that one of our foremost thinkers took this upon herself, for years, in real time, wrestling every day and living to tell. So fucking ready to live in the world this book will help make. Read and discuss, discuss, discuss.
An intricately constructed book based on games of chance. This feels new. Heti writes with courage, curiosity, and uncommon truth. A joy to read. Motherhood synergistically functions both as an intimate, moving, autobiographical novel and as a practical, mysterious, five-year tool used by its protagonist to help her contemplate and answer central questions in her life.
I recommend reading and rereading Motherhood. Sheila Heti has broken new ground, both in her maturity as an artist and in the possibilities of the female discourse itself. Reading Motherhood forced me to become a little more honest with myself.
Sheila Heti wrings revelation from the act of asking, again and again, in ever more challenging and innovative ways, impossible questions of existence.

Motherhood is a thrilling, very funny, and almost unbearably moving book. Motherhood is a riveting story of love and fate, a powerful inspiration to reflect, and a subtle depiction of the lives of contemporary women and men, by an exceptional artist in the prime of her powers. Motherhood constitutes its own genre within the many-faceted novel of ideas. Heti is like no one else. A literature of ideas and inquiry, filed as fiction though really inhabiting a zone yet to be named.
Eagerly awaited. Consistently fascinating. Alarmingly candid. The emotions in Motherhood are potent. Cole, Now Toronto. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Read more Read less.

To battle nature and submit to nature, both feel very worthy. They both seem entirely valuable. Her observations about gender are also really sharp and relatable. I get it.
It grew tiresome at multiple points, and then it would pick back up with her stunning prose and observations.
I dig Heti a lot overall though. I like seeing a woman embrace the pretentiousness that men are so often permitted without reproach. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is a fascinating autobiographical novel. I thought, mistakenly, it would be a little dry and intellectual for me. It's the exact opposite. Sheila Heti's writing is direct and extraordinarily honest. Her thoughts, uncertainties, perceptions and experiences are totally absorbing, and I'm left wishing we could be friends and could discuss our experiences over coffee!
I highly recommend this remarkable book, particularly to other women. Heti aptly and poetically describes the questioning that I imagine every woman of childbearing age goes through. Well done. A moving picture of a woman dealing with uncertainty and indecision. Sheila the beautiful little girl in this story went through hell and back, and worse still was all at such a young age. A teacher, this wonderful Author Torey Hayden too this little girl under her wing, she was blessed with patients and best yet her heart was full of love, love for children, love for job, and she believed in the children she taught and cared for.
In three d As a severely abused individual I related to this story. In three days I have been mesmerized by "One Child, and Tiger Child" My heart longs to have someone like Torey in my life who gives a Dam, Whilst reading Tiger Child I was telling Sheila to run into Toreys arms, Sheila needed to be embraced, she needed to have warming loving arms wrapped around her frail body, Sheila's heart needed to know she was loved and Torey did just that.
These two Books One Child Tigers Child I highly recommend you read these. I cannot get Sheila and Torey out of my head, still after reading these books I am left in tears. I found this book in short depressing. That wonderful little girl we meet in One Child is long gone. She feels confused and angry at the world. To be honest I can see why she does. Not only her mother leaving her but her teacher as well? And then living with her good for nothing father.
Probably being abused at foster homes As far as I'm concerned she does have a reason to rant and rave at the world. Also time and time again she mentions how things seemed different to I found this book in short depressing. Also time and time again she mentions how things seemed different to her when she read One Child before it was published. It honestly made me wonder about if Mrs. Hayden is stretching any truths there. After all, we remember what we want about history. Or rather history is written by the victors, not the losers.
I would be rather interested to read how Shelia would remember that time and compare it. This story just hit me as wrong. Maybe we saw more reality then we did in her other books. I'm not sure. All I know is this book didn't sit well with me. I put it down several times and finished it more out of not having anything else to read then any other reason View 1 comment. This is a story I read years ago and just recently revisited.
As a pediatric and psych nurse, I have always been a fan of Hayden's books. This is the rare story that goes beyond what Hayden does in the special needs classroom with a five or six year old and actually gives us a glimpse of one of her students Sheila into early adulthood. This is the sequel to, One Child. It has a different feel to it for sure since it This is a story I read years ago and just recently revisited.
Also, Hayden is ten years older herself and with time and circumstance, Hayden has grown and changed. Hayden ponders this and the question of how much harm is done in the process of trying to do good.

An extraordinary story! Nov 29, carolyn rated it liked it. I do commend Torey on all the dedication that she has shown this child throughout all of the years, even after they lost contact with eachother for years, the connection still was there and brought them back together.
It was good to find out that "Sheila" survived all of the ordeals that was tossed her way and had gotten on with her life. I was disappointed though on the career path that she had chosen for herself since she was a brilliant child, but in a sense totally understand the decision that she made to work at McDonald's. Part of me believes that this decision was based upon the multiple times her and Torey had shared McDonald's with eachother. Then again part of me believes that she didn't want to deal with school anymore because of all the "crap" she had to deal with both in and out of school.
Overall, a good read and if you have read "one Child", then you should also read this one. Nov 01, Dian Novita Elfrida rated it liked it Recommends it for: To all interested to learn about human characters. Buku ini merupakan sambungan dari buku Sheila: Luka Hati Seorang Gadis Kecil. Sekarang Sheila sudah berusia 14 tahun, namun masih penuh dengan masalah. Saya lebih menikmati membaca kisah pertama dari kehidupan Sheila.
Dalam buku pertama tersebut, saya lebih dapat merasakan pergumulan dan emosi Torey Hayden dalam menghadapi Sheila. Mungkin juga karena Sheila yang sekarang sudah lebih bisa ditangani daripada Sheila kecil berusia 6 tahun. Tapi, tetap sebuah buku yang menarik, khususnya bagi pembaca Buku ini merupakan sambungan dari buku Sheila: Tapi, tetap sebuah buku yang menarik, khususnya bagi pembaca buku Sheila yang pertama, pasti juga tertarik untuk mengetahui bagaimana kelanjutan kasha hidup Sheila.
What a disappointment. There really wasn't much excitement in this book which is a good thing for Sheila, but makes a bad thing to publish. Do yourself a favor and skip reading the book. I'll tell you what happened: She still had some of the same fears, issues and attributes of her younger self. Her father went back on drugs so she was placed in foster homes where she was raped in one. Every home after that, she ran away from. She placed a What a disappointment. She placed ads in all of the California newspapers in hopes that her mother would contact her.
A woman did, but she had mental health issues and wasn't really her mother. When Sheila became an adult, she took a Full-time job at McDonalds; she later became one of the youngest franchise owners in her area. The end. I didn't think to mark the page After reading that, I started wondering if Hayden wrote about Sheila just to toot her own horn. And omg! I never want to read the words "pensive silence" ever again!
Review coming soon. I thought this book was good, but dragged a bit and then there was a flurry and it was over. There's a point in this book where the author returns from vacation to find a letter from Sheila, the subject of this book; Sheila writes that she's planning to commit suicide. The letter had been sent at about the same time as Hayden had left for vacation. She tries to figure out how she can find out whether Sheila was still alive, but can't think how she would phrase the question to the staff of Sheila's group home; in the end, she does nothing and gets caught up in her other clients and activ There's a point in this book where the author returns from vacation to find a letter from Sheila, the subject of this book; Sheila writes that she's planning to commit suicide.
She tries to figure out how she can find out whether Sheila was still alive, but can't think how she would phrase the question to the staff of Sheila's group home; in the end, she does nothing and gets caught up in her other clients and activities. Reading this, I thought, "Call the group home, tell them Sheila had written to you, and ask if she can have visitors.
Even if they don't tell you whether Sheila committed suicide, they'll at least tell you whether she's there. A student breaks down? She sits and watches instead of reacting.
A child disappears? She and a coworker stand and argue for 15 minutes about whose fault it is before looking for him. So much of the success Hayden has with clients in these books seems to be made up of lucky breaks and stumbling onto a method that works. In fact, she admits as much in several of the books. That being said, I enjoyed reading this book. Hayden originally had Sheila as a student at the age of 6 a story written about in her book "One Child" ; "The Tiger's Child" retells that story, then picks up when Hayden reunites with Sheila eight years later.
In the interim, Sheila has had a pretty rough life; her addict father basically pimps her out to support his habit, she moves from one foster home to another, etc.
Hayden is operating a summer program for some of her child clients and offers Sheila the chance to work as an aide in the program. Sheila's interactions with the children and with Hayden, and her coming to terms with all the things that have happened to her, make up the rest of the book.
Reading Hayden's books, and her accounts of the horrible things that have happened to these children, is emotionally exhausting. The fact that people, often the children's parents themselves, could do such terrible things, makes me incredibly sad. I'm thankful that there are people like the author who are driven by a need to help these children work through the severe emotional trauma they've been subjected to.
Again, the writing is fine but I feel the need to take away stars because I am uncomfortable about Hayden using this child's story in this way. As a follow-up to One Child, The Tiger's Child illustrates why we are so encouraged to have "healthy boundaries" in our work with children, in order not to cross over the fine line between helper and caregiver. When you've bathed and rocked and hair-dressed a child for a year, when you've taken them shopping and given them gifts, it's natural for that chil Again, the writing is fine but I feel the need to take away stars because I am uncomfortable about Hayden using this child's story in this way.
When you've bathed and rocked and hair-dressed a child for a year, when you've taken them shopping and given them gifts, it's natural for that child to experience that relationship as something other than just "your job". And therefore when you part ways, either because insurance stops paying, the school year ends, or a new research project beckons, the child experiences a level of abandonment that isn't helpful and for which they have no context.
In the case of Sheila, Hayden got another go at putting that abandonment into context by contacting Sheila years later and reprocessing the whole treatment with her via having teenage Sheila read the manuscript of the book Hayden wrote about the child's year in her classroom at age 6.
I appreciate that Hayden did not portray that reunion or the process of rehashing the past with Sheila as a feel-good Lifetime movie event, and that she doesn't always portray herself as having done the right thing. As a therapist trained decades later than Hayden and steeped in the doctrine of maintaining healthy boundaries, I had to cringe and cringe again at some of Hayden's choices.
The idea of sharing a hotel room with a teen client is enough to chill the blood these days, but Hayden apparently held no qualms of either disrupting her therapeutic alliance with Sheila, nor fear of losing her license.
Instead she hid behind the technicality that Sheila was not currently her client. As professionals, we don't often get a second go at a child, and reading One Child and its sequel may satisfy readers who work with troubled children and fantasize about how helpful it would be to both treatment provider and child if we could look up our clients years later and do that reprocessing.
Hayden got to live the dream with Sheila, but I can't get past being dismayed at the choices she made while doing it.

Apakah Sheila dapat meraih masa depannya? Yang pasti semua jawaban atas pertanyaan itu dapat kita peroleh dengan membaca buku ini. Very interesting to read this follow-up to "One Child" and hear what later became of Sheila.
I found the idea fascinating that Torey might actually have done as much harm as good in her way of treating Sheila back when she was 6. I can totally see both how Sheila and her dad might have seen it that way, and how horrified Torey would have been to discover that could have been the case. I didn't like this book quite as much as "One Child" though.
Torey really didn't come off in the best light her Very interesting to read this follow-up to "One Child" and hear what later became of Sheila. Torey really didn't come off in the best light here. I know it's non-fiction so she couldn't have written it any other way and still be truthful, but there were times where I caught myself thinking, "Dude, you're supposed to be the professional, and even I know you aren't handling that right!
I have also learned not to read Torey Hayden's books in translation. This is the second one I've tried, and they've both been really, really badly translated. This one slightly less so, fortunately. One in a series in which Hayden recalls her work as a teacher and therapist for psychologically disturbed children.
In this particular book, she reconnects with Sheila, a six-year-old girl she worked with in a previous book who was prone to violent rages and elective mutism. Sheila is a teenager now, and by tracking the course of her life this book squarely confronts some of the difficulties inherent in the 1-year school approach, and in Hayden's books themselves.
It's incredibly meta-analytical One in a series in which Hayden recalls her work as a teacher and therapist for psychologically disturbed children. It's incredibly meta-analytical Hayden gives Sheila a pre-publication copy of the previous book about her, and they discuss the different ways they remember things and personal motivations. Clever, complicated, self-reflective, a little rueful. Novel ini menuturkan kisah hidup seorang anak Sheila yang memiliki emosi sangat labil, akibat masa lalunya yang suram.
