Summary "The remarkable first novel from the award-winning British writer, Jessie Greengrass 'It seemed, at times, an act of profound selfishness, to have a child so that I might become a parent; but selfish, too, to have a child and stay the same, or not to have one - unless the only honest choice would have been to try to become this kinder version of myself without the need to bring another into it.' Set at the twin poles of life and death, 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. With forays into the history of psychoanalysis and the origins of modern surgery, our unnamed narrator shines a light on those hidden parts that lie at the heart of us, to reveal an examined life laid bare in all its desire and grief. Fiercely intelligent and exquisitely written, Jessie Greengrass's remarkable debut is an incisive exploration of how we see others, and how we might know ourselves"-- Provided by publisher.
