Heti has carved out a niche as a theoretician of situational discomfort, driven by the belief that getting out of your element is the only basis for discovery… An emissary from the same school of postmodern self-help as David Foster Wallace, Heti’s fiction seeks a space for the self while maintaining that “personality is just an invention of the news media”.
