Sight by Jessie Greengrass review – a stunning debut about pregnancy
21 February 2018 | 2:30 am Books | The Guardian

This novel is a poised meditation on our bodies and the perils of becoming a parentThe man who invented the x-ray, Wilhelm Röntgen, happened upon his discovery by accident, devoting a few weeks to it before moving on. Nevertheless he revolutionised medicine, and changed for ever the way we relate to our bodies. No longer opaque, obscure things, they were now – at this very beginning, in 1895 – more knowable. But this did not mean that they were any less inscrutable. Related: Top 10...

But in Sweden it was never in doubt. The starting point for this weird, sad,...

A Hero for High Times by Ian Marchant review – the forgotten man at the heart of the counterculture
20 February 2018 | 5:00 am Books | The Guardian

The stories of Bob Rowberry, the first person to sell acid to RD Laing, provide a perfect initiation to four decades of beats, hippies, punks and freaksThis book is not for me.
