Motherhood: Sheila Heti and Sally Rooney

Sheila Heti’s latest novel Motherhood (Harvill Secker) confronts, in the characteristic fiction-cum-essay style which she pioneered in How Should a Person Be?, one of the fundamental dilemmas of early womanhood: to have children or not.

She read from her work and discussed it with Sally Rooney, bestselling author of Conversations with Friends (Faber).
