    In Sheila Heti’s genre-bending novels, life’s vexing questions course through the pages like underground rivers, whether she’s asking How Should a Person Be? (2010) or thinking about Motherhood (2018) without having children.

    Here, Heti shares a new text that springs out of Liz Magor’s work and is included in the forthcoming catalogue for BLOWOUT. Alluding to Heti’s particular vitality, Magor notes: “I am interested in writers who eschew the conventional operations of fiction in search of emergent feeling; writers who might use the material of a real life in its raw state.”

    This event is presented in partnership with the Seminary Coop Bookstore.
