Product description

Review

A stunning debut (Guardian)

Precise and moving . . . The pages on the mother's decline are a masterclass in wrenching, pitiless truth . . . the potted stories of Röntgen, Freud and Hunter form a fluid, richly associative historic narrative of investigation into the body and the mind, about seeking constantly to expand the borders of what we can see (Daily Telegraph ****)

An exceptionally accomplished debut (Observer)

The poise, intelligence and serious intent of Sight will be lauded, and rightly so. I would not be surprised to see it on heavyweight prize lists (Sunday Times)

Exceptional . . . The prose is unsentimental, measured, breathtaking in its elegance . . . remarkably moving (The Spectator)

This is a first novel - an original one by a writer who clearly has considerable gifts and a serious, nuanced approach to individual psychology and intellectual history (Financial Times)

Greengrass's fiercely cerebral despatch from one of life's most extraordinary rites of passage impresses linguistically, intellectually and emotionally (Mail on Sunday)

A slight and wondrous tale (New Statesman)

A slow burning, beautifully written debut . . . accomplished and melancholic (Irish Times)

Remarkable and affecting (Literary Review)

Book Description

The extraordinary first novel from the author of the prize-winning An Account of the Decline of the Great Auk, According to One Who Saw It
