New fiction: The Empathy Problem

Eithne Farry introduces the new novel by Gavin Extence


New fiction: The Empathy Problem

Cold and calculating, Gabriel Vaughn has, in his own words, lived his whole life ‘putting my interests ahead of every other person on the planet’.

That is until he is diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour, which alters the way he feels about everything.

Extence’s tale of a life-changing transformation is unusual; a gripping look at an unlikeable character who swaps insensitivity for soulfulness.

The Empathy Problem by Gavin Extence (Hodder & Stoughton, £16.99) is out now.
