Signed by the author on the title page. "In the Age of Audience, life must be made visible to be neatly digested by its privileged onlookers. In response to America's lust for that visual authenticity, for the ambiguous stance of both disengaged witness and omniscient participant, Claeb Sharrow becomes the Peeping Tom of the visual avant-garde. But in a succession of vivid incidents, he lerans that there is a subtlety to man's fate, and to his own, that lies beyond his lenses and angles, his dissolves and close-ups. The Sightseer is a brilliant, voyeuristic novel." - Jerzy Kosinski.
