Now available: The Listener

A wise and witty novel about the challenges to identity that arise in both adolescence and middle age—and the student and therapist who just may have the power to save each other.

Praise for The Listener

“The psychology of intimacy (and the intimacy of psychology) is put on the couch and made to reveal its deepest, darkest truths in The Listener. And the result, for the brave reader, is cathartic and life- (and love-) affirming. This is an important, provocative, enthralling novel with heart and soul to spare. Rachel Basch might just have the cure for what ails your literary psyche.”


- Charles Blackstone, author of Vintage Attraction

The Listener unfolds like a map, leading us with remarkable clarity through landscapes we thought we knew into the wild territories at the heart of any American family. Rachel Basch uncovers such vital truths about parents, children, lovers, friends...that you’ll want to put this novel in the hands of everyone you meet and say, Read it now.


- Nalini Jones, author of What You Call Winter
