The default export of
@sanity/client
is a sanity client constructor, not a singleton. You need to construct a client, then you can access its documents

See the introductory example on how to construct one https://www.sanity.io/docs/js-client

import client from 'part:@sanity/base/client

Here's another example using observables to make the structure real-time https://github.com/sanity-io/sanity-recipes/blob/master/snippets/deskStructureWithRoles.js
