This, it seems to Ally, is the condition of human agency; our very lives cause harm to others and it is wilful blindness to pretend otherwise. We are all of us, every mortal soul, damaging persons. Our best hope, for salvation and for medicine – the thing, she thinks, that Mamma cannot do – is to own the damage we do. And to live with it
