The Empathy Problem

(1)
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?

Bestselling author Gavin Extence pushes the envelope again with another thought-provoking and funny novel about the surprises, good and bad, that life can throw at us.

„A life changing tumour... “

Fabian Jacob, Thalia-Buchhandlung Soest

When ruthless Gabriel, whose only goal in life has only ever been money, success and power, learns that a terminal tumour has started growing in his brain, he decides not to let that inconvenience influence his life. But suddenly his personality is starting to undergo rather radical changes. Especially young Caitlin and her wonderful violin appear to have a major impact on his...what are they called again...oh,right: "FEELINGS"!?
But time is running out. Could there still be a second chance?
Gavin Extence's third novel is, just like his previous two, wonderfully written and incredibly moving. A true joy!
