'The End of Seeing was one of those books I raced through with a catch in my throat and tears in my eyes. A love-letter to a vanished husband, this novella unfolds like the black-and-white photos he took on his final assignment: nuanced and tender, political and tense. Meticulous observations on the scent and texture of personal grief and domestic detail are illuminated by the global suffering of asylum seekers and the displaced. Christy Collins has written a subtle thriller with mystery at its heart.' – Katerina Cosgrove

You saw something here – something that connects this town to the fishermen on the Italian docks and the silhouettes in the charcoal nights by the sea. I am so tired of all the things that you aren’t here to tell me.

Determined to discover the truth about the disappearance of her partner, Nick, Ana sets out to re-trace the route he took as a photojournalist on the other side of the world — a journey that saw him presumed dead, on a ship wrecked off the coast of Italy.

But Ana doesn’t believe Nick is dead. In his photos, in the messages her memories of him seem to carry, and in her growing suspicion about his own need to disappear, she is increasingly sure he is alive somewhere.

As she tracks his journey, she begins to witness the world that Nick saw through his camera — a world in which disappearance is not unexpected.
