'You can't put it down . . . precise and propulsive . . . a real page-turner' Janice Forsyth Show, BBC Radio Scotland

'It's so good it'll leave you wanting to change your own life' Independent

******************


So far in his life, Gabriel - selfish, arrogant and happy to be so - has only ever thought about two things: money and himself. When he's diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour, he doesn't see why anything should change.

But as the tumour grows, something strange starts happening. Whether Gabriel likes it or not, he's becoming . . . nicer. Kinder. A better person.

And then he meets Caitlin. Before, he wouldn't even have glanced at her; now he's entranced. But real change takes time - and time is something Gabriel just doesn't have.

As each day brings him closer to his last, has the one opportunity for a second chance passed him by?

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

The Empathy Problem is delightful, written in a warm, engaging voice and composed of short chapters that rattle along . . . An accessible read but one that prompts you to think about what it means to live a moral life. It's so good it 'll leave you wanting to change your own life, to be a better person. (Independent)

Witty and sincere . . . very clever (Huffington Post)

Another stand-out book from this outstanding author (Book of the Week The Sun)

A very personal, compassionate and intimate read. Gavin Extence is fast becoming one of my favourite authors, he constantly surprises, challenges and stimulates with his barbed, so beautifully readable books. I sat up reading for most of the night, and even when I had turned the last page, I didn't want to put it down. (Lovereading.co.uk)

Emotional porn for lefties . . . You can't put it down . . . precise and propulsive . . . a real page-turner (Janice Forsyth show BBC Radio Scotland)

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)

Witty, insightful and tender, The Empathy Problem is a triumph. I loved it. (Random things Through my Letterbox blog)

I absolutely loved this story... Extence has such a dry, witty style of writing. (Marie Claire)

Extence's novel is an absolute triumph, once again reiterating his skill for characterisation and voice. (Nudge books)
