How Should a Person Be?
I am interested in what is the truth of life for other people (September 11, 2014)

Sheila Heti is a Canadian writer and editor. How Should A Person Be? is her second novel.

Editorial reviews (2 reviews)


Sheila Heti’s semi-autobiographical novel is a humorous, quixotic quest for selfhood in a generation that sometimes seems defined by celebrity, triviality and Paris Hilton’s sex tapes.

This novel, which includes not just real people but their emails and transcribed conversations, and dangles itself precariously somewhere between "real life" and "art" is, in the end, a meditation on ugliness rather than beauty, and reality rather than fiction.
