Spending Time in My Head
"I spend most of my time in my head. You can always work out solutions and satisfactions there. Maybe you can't actually bring them about, but there's usually a pleasant pillow of time between imagining you can and realizing you cannot."
– Sheila Heti, "Up Front", New York Times, January 18, 2013
From her debut with her story collection, The Middle Stories, published in 2001 when she was twenty-four, to her most recent novel, the bestseller, How Should a Person Be?, Ms. Heti has lived in her head crafting many solutions and satisfactions, many of which have found their way to the pages of her seven books, including the play All Our Happy Days are Stupid and the children's book We Need A Horse.
Find out what it's like to live in her head when Ms. Heti reads selections from her yet-to-be published new work.
