Listening In allows the reader to eavesdrop behind the closed door of the therapy room, where private and personal lives are stripped bare. Forty-something Patrick Chime is a talented therapist but terrible husband. When a client demands Patrick's personal, as well as professional, involvement in his life, he is forced to evaluate not only the true worth of the therapy but also the cost to him of a life spent listening in. As his world starts to unravel, and he learns more about his client's obsessions with the artist Degas and internet sex, Patrick comes to appreciate the parallels between therapy and prostitution and starts to question which is more genuine... Listening In is the debut novel by sexual counsellor and marital therapist Kevin Chandler.
