Chosen as one of fifteen remarkable books by women that are shaping the way we read and write in the 21st century by the book critics ofThe New York Times

Brutally honest and stylistically inventive, cerebral, and sexy. San Francisco Chronicle

Named a Book of the Year byThe New York Times Book Review,The New Yorker,San Francisco Chronicle,Salon,Flavorpill,The New Republic,The New York Observer, The Huffington Post

A raw, startling, genre-defying novel of friendship, sex, and love in the new millenniuma compulsive read that's like spending a day with your new best friend (Bookforum)

By turns loved and reviled upon its U.S. publication, Sheila Heti's breakthrough novel (Chris Kraus,Los Angeles Review of Books) is an unabashedly honest and hilarious tour through the unknowable pieces of one woman's heart and mind. Part literary novel, part self-help manual, and part vivid exploration of the artistic and sexual impulse,How Should a Person Be?earned Heti comparisons to Henry Miller, Joan Didion, Mary McCarthy, and Flaubert, while shocking and exciting readers with its raw, urgent depiction of female friendship and of the shape of our lives now. Irreverent, brilliant, and completely original, Heti challenges, questions, frustrates, and entertains in equal measure. With urgency and candor she asks: What is the most noble way to love? What kind of person should you be?

Sheila Hetiis the author of several books of fiction, includingThe Middle StoriesandTicknor; and an essay collection written with Misha Glouberman,The Chairs Are Where the People Go. Her writing has been translated into ten lanl£O
