(From the publisher):
The stunning novel of a man blessed and cursed by the amazing gift of being able to peer into people's minds, to read thoughts, to know their feelings, and to hear their unspoken lies...
The remarkable life saga of David Selig, a boy like any other yet like no other... growing up, falling in love, protecting himself from things he does not want to hear, and eavesdropping on all that he does...
The chilling story of what happens when David's power begins to ebb... stranding him slowly in an incomprehensible alien world, leaving him outwardly living - but dying inside!
