Pure Color By Sheila Heti

Read by the author

Pure Color stretches the boundaries of what a novel can be. Lyrical, strange, and fascinating, this is a mediation on life, death, love, nature, and art. Author Sheila Heti’s narration of the audiobook creates a special listening experience. Her voice and her words captivated me from beginning to end. This is experimental literature at its very best and well worth a listen. —Trey
