Sight | Jessie Greengrass
A compassionate and philosophical novel about the progress to motherhood, while remembering the death of her own mother, and the childhood summers she spent with her psychoanalyst grandmother. Woven among these personal recollections are significant events in medical history. What emerges is the realisation that while the search for understanding might not lead us to an absolute truth, it is an end in itself. Being a parent, being a child and seeing your parents for all their flaws; about growing up and trying to come to terms with existing in a world where your parents, your only constant in that world, are no longer there.
