Seeing Red opens with the
narrator losing her vision and somehow creates a text that is more visual, not less, as a
result. Intertwining fiction and autobiography the novel explores and interrogates the
tropes of illness narratives in relation to gender and gender stereotypes.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
I loved this novel, it's kind of creepy, the narrator is totally not a "good person" and I was a little afraid of her (also afraid for her), she has abruptly lost her vision and the writing conveyed what her sightlessness felt like as well as her surroundings (NYC, Chile), family dynamics and how suffocating and infuriating family (even kind/well-meaning family) can be. I was disappointed by a brief moment that (to me) seemed like casual transmisogyny thrown in for comic relief but maybe I misinterpreted, but that's how it seemed to me.
