The Empathy Problem by Gavin Extence

Driven by money, power and success, Gabriel has worked ruthlessly to get to the very top of the banking game.  He’s not going to let the inconvenience of a terminal brain tumour get in his way.

But the tumour has other ideas.  As it grows, it appears to be doing strange things to Gabriel’s personality.  Whether he likes it or not, he seems to be becoming less selfish, less mercenary, less unlikeable.

Once he could dismiss the rest of humanity as irrelevant.  Now he’s not so sure.  Women, in particular, are becoming worryingly three-dimensional.  And none more so than Caitlin, the ‘unremarkable’ girl he sees busking on the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral.  When she plays her violin, Gabriel could almost believe that he has a soul…

But as each day that passes brings him closer to his last, has time run out for second chances?

Peer & Press Reviews

Extence keeps the twists and turns coming, full of mordant wit, until the bitter end.

Daily Mail

It’s funny, well observed and heartfelt without being sentimental… a lovely, engaging read that’ll leave you resolving to change your own life for the better.

Winq Magazine

Emotional porn for lefties…  You can’t put it down…  precise and propulsive… a real page-turner.

Janice Forsyth Show, BBC Radio Scotland
