With a twenty-something protagonist named Sheila, and a narrative based on conversations and emails between her and her friends, this 2012 sensation blurs the lines between fiction and nonfiction.
Using transcribed conversations, real emails, plus heavy doses of fiction, the always innovative Heti crafts a work that is part literary novel, part self-help manual, and part bawdy confessional.
Heti comes from Toronto to discuss with Rachel Cusk her totally shameless and dynamic exploration into the way we live now, breathing fresh wisdom into eternal questions: What is the sincerest way to love? What kind of a person should you be?
