Alphabetical Diaries

Sheila Heti
In conversation with Michelle Tea
February 13, 2024

The award-winning, beloved author of Pure Colour Sheila Heti returns to ALOUD with her new thrilling confessional Alphabetical Diaries. Over a 10-year period, Heti kept a record of her thoughts, then arranged the sentences from A to Z. Known for her experimental literary works —passionate and reflective, joyful and despairing—Heti masterfully structures her diary entries into a pastiche of unconventional structure that keeps the reader entirely engaged.

Co-presented with Skylight Books.
