Reviews

A stunning debut - GuardianPrecise and moving . . . The pages on the mother's decline are a masterclass in wrenching, pitiless truth . . . the potted stories of Rontgen, 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 - ObserverThe 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 TimesExceptional . . . The prose is unsentimental, measured, breathtaking in its elegance . . . remarkably moving - The SpectatorThere are echoes of WG Sebald and Rachel Cusk in this thoughtful, digressive style that swirls together the historical and the personal, but Greengrass's questing intellect and elegant prose are all her own - Guardian, 50 Books to Read NowThis 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 TimesGreengrass's fiercely cerebral despatch from one of life's most extraordinary rites of passage impresses linguistically, intellectually and emotionally - Mail on Sunday
