About the Author

Sheila Heti is the author of ten books, including the novels Motherhood and How Should a Person Be?, which New York magazine deemed one of the 'New Classics of the twenty-first century' and which was longlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction. She was named one of the 'New Vanguard' by the New York Times book critics, who, along with a dozen other magazines and newspapers, chose Motherhood as a best book of the year. Her novels have been translated into twenty-four languages. She is the former interviews editor of The Believer magazine. She lives in Toronto.


An impressive spectrum of meaning and feeling, both abstract and tangible... This one-of-a-kind novel... feels nothing less than vital. -- Anthony Cummins * Observer *
Pure Colour is the apocalypse written as trance, a sleepwalker's song about the end of all things... This is a novel that is happy to compass contradictions. It is a system, not an opinion... There is also Heti's lovely prose to enjoy, her beautifully sustained tone, the way she is, as a writer, earnest, funny and sweet... Pure Colour is an original, a book that says something new for our difficult times. It's a bit mad, but I think you will like it. -- Anne Enright * Guardian *
Exemplifies both originality and sharpness... the kind of book that you start reading again as soon as you finish it, to see how on earth the author pulled it off... Descriptions of grief that are so surprising and true they made me gasp. -- Hadley Freeman * Guardian *
Pure Colour is not just a novel, it's a creation myth, a fairy tale, a story about making art and living on this planet. A story about death and the irresistible inner stirrings that bring us back to life. Beautiful and impossible to put down. Sheila Heti is a genius. -- Avni Doshi
Wonderfully entertaining... a treat to read. Expect to take in the work of a true wordsmith, as Heti turns something deeply saddening into a natural process that has many brighter notes. -- Kiran Meeda * Stylist *
