SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2018 ' A beautiful debut... Greengrass is an important new voice in fiction .' – Jamie Quatro, author of Fire Sermon 'A brilliant and meditative piece of art. ' – Weike Wang, author of Chemistry ' Elegant and intelligent, troubling and serious... exquisitely well-assembled.' – Max Porter, author of Grief Is the Thing with Feathers 'A masterpiece of restraint and intensity.' – Elisa Albert, author of After Birth In Jessie Greengrass' dazzlingly brilliant debut novel, our unnamed narrator recounts her progress to motherhood, while remembering the death of her own mother ten years before, and the childhood summers she spent with her psychoanalyst grandmother. Woven among these personal recollections are significant events in medical history: Wilhelm Rontgen's discovery of the X-ray; Sigmund Freud's development of psychoanalysis and the work that he did with his daughter, Anna; and the origins of modern surgery and the anatomy of pregnant bodies. Sight is a novel about being a parent and a child: what it is like to bring a person in to the world, and what it is to let one go. Exquisitely written and fiercely intelligent, it is an incisive exploration of how we see others, and how we might know ourselves.
