The Whole Man
Ballantine First Edition paperback cover
|Genre||Science fiction novel|
|Media type||Print (Hardcover & Paperback)|
This novel is often considered a turning point in Brunner's career, a step up from the space operas he'd been turning out as Ace Doubles and pointing towards the richer, more complex books exemplified by Quicksand and Stand on Zanzibar.
In the UK, it was published under the title Telepathist.
After a riot in a near-future England where telepathy has been discovered, the authorities discover Gerald Howson, a physically deformed youth with greater telepathic power than has ever been seen before. The novel details Howson's struggles to come to grips with his power and his deformity.
