Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
David Selig is outwardly unimpressive. His early promise as a student and scholar is unrealised. He has no proper job, he has no girlfriend. But, inside, Selig has the power of a god, for he can probe other people’s minds and read their thoughts and feelings. This extraordinary faculty defines his sense of self - his power is him. But with the onset of middle age, Selig’s capacity to read minds is failing fast, and he must struggle to come to terms with that loss - to accept that he is dying inside. . .

"A brilliant study of a telepath losing his power"
- The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction

"David Selig is as jewishly self-revealing as Portnoy . . . his remembrance of telepathic and sexual triumphs and disasters makes a marvellously entertaining read"
- Evening Standard

"One of the best-written SF novels in many years"
- Christopher Priest, Oxford Mail
