"Gussoff has a good eye for detail...A tautly written, haunting tale of loneliness, alienation, and lost hopes and dreams."—Kirkus Reviews

"Deals insightfully and unsentimentally with the issues the Jerry Springer show frequently airs, showing how seemingly normal families nourish the impulse for self-destruction."—Scotland on Sunday

The stories in Sight Unseen map out the tangled webs of love, dependency and identity among a cast of fragile, bruised characters. A dying recluse is torn between her mother and the pursuit of pain and a younger sister unleashes a terrible revenge when her virginity is traded for drugs.

The author of Homecoming, Caren Gussoff grew up in New York. She has an MFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She now organizes online support groups for the chronically ill and lives in Seattle.
