Granta Mag 161: Sister, Brother
Psychoanalysis famously privileges the vertical relationship between a child (the patient) and their parents over the seemingly equal and unproblematic horizontal connections between siblings. This issue of Granta tells a different story – one of chaotic hierarchies, zero-sum games of competition alternating with tenderness, lifelong relationships that nevertheless can sometimes break.
