Mutterschaft (Ungekürzte Lesung

Author: Sheila Heti Narrator: Claudia Michelsen Release Date: June 2019

Was wird gewonnen und was geht verloren, wenn eine Frau sich entschließt, ein Kind zu bekommen? In ihren späten Dreißigern, als die Freundinnen sich fragen, wann sie endlich Mutter werden, fragt Sheila Heti sich, ob sie es überhaupt werden will. In einer mehrere Jahre umspannenden Selbsterkundung, mal hierhin, mal dorthin gezogen von ihren Mitmenschen, ihrem Partner und den Verpflichtungen gegenüber ihren jüdischen Vorfahren, versucht sie eine weise und moralische Entscheidung zu treffen. Nachdem Philosophie, ihr Körper, die Mystik und der Zufall nicht geholfen haben, findet sie die Antwort viel näher bei sich. 'Diese Erkundung der moralischen, gesellschaftlichen und psychologischen Beziehung der modernen Frau zur Mutterschaft ist eine Erleuchtung, eine Provokation und - endlich - eine Antwort auf die neuen Normen der Weiblichkeit', schrieb Bestsellerautorin Rachel Cusk über Mutterschaft, und Elif Batuman: 'Ich bin mir sicher, dass dieses Buch vielen verschiedenen Menschen viel bedeuten wird - so, als hätte Sheila Heti tatsächlich ein menschliches Wesen geboren, wenn auch auf unerklärlich andere Weise. Und das ist nur eine der vielen Paradoxien, vor denen dieses mutige, notwendige und visionäre Buch nicht zurüc

Women in Clothes Audiobook

Women in Clothes

Women in Clothes is a book unlike any other. It is essentially a conversation among hundreds of women of all nationalities-famous, anonymous, religious, secular, married, single, young, old-on the subject of clothing, and how the garments we put on every day define and shape our lives.It began with a survey. The editors composed a list of more than fifty questions designed to prompt women to think more deeply about their personal style. Writers, activists, and artists including Cindy Sherman, Kim Gordon, Kalpona Akter, Sarah Nicole Prickett, Tavi Gevinson, Miranda July, Sasha Grey, Lena Dunham, and Molly Ringwald answered these questions with photographs, interviews, personal testimonies, and illustrations.Even our most basic clothing choices can give us confidence, show the connection between our appearance and our habits of mind, express our values and our politics, bond us with our friends, and function as armor or disguise. They are the tools we use to reinvent ourselves and to transform how others see us. Women in Clothes embraces the complexity of women's style decisions, revealing the sometimes funny, sometimes strange, always telling impulses that influence our daily ritual of getting dressed.

How Should a Person Be? Audiobook

How Should a Person Be?

Author: Sheila Heti Narrator: Allyson Ryan Release Date: August 2016

Reeling from a failed marriage, Sheila, a twenty-something playwright, finds herself unsure of how to live and create. When Margaux, a talented painter and free spirit, and Israel, a sexy and depraved artist, enter her life, Sheila hopes that through close-sometimes too close-observation of her new friend, her new lover, and herself, she might regain her footing in art and life. Using transcribed conversations, real emails, plus heavy doses of fiction, the brilliant and always innovative Sheila Heti crafts a work that is part literary novel, part self-help manual, and part bawdy confessional. It's a totally shameless and dynamic exploration into the way we live now, which breathes fresh wisdom into the eternal questions: What is the sincerest way to love? What kind of person should you be?
