Description
"One of science fiction's premiere humorists turns her eagle eye to the crushing societal implications of telepathy. In a not-too-distant future, a simple outpatient procedure that has been promised to increase empathy between romantic partners has become all the rage. So when Briddey Flannigan's fiancé proposes that he and Briddey undergo the procedure, she is delighted! Only...the results aren't quite as expected. Instead of gaining an increased empathetic link with her fiancé Briddey finds herself hearing the actual thoughts of one of the nerdiest techs in her office. And that's the least of her problems"--
When a technological breakthrough enables romantic partners to achieve empathy via a simple outpatient procedure, Briddley Flannigan delightedly undergoes the treatment in the hopes of becoming closer to her fiancé, only to find herself hearing the thoughts of one of the tech nerds in her office.
