A heartfelt, hilarious tale of a famous trend forecaster who suddenly finds herself at odds with her own predictions... and her own heart.
Estranged from her family, best friends with her driverless car, partnered with a Frenchman who belives in post-sexual sex, international trend forecaster Sloane Jacobsen is the perfect candidate to lead tech giant Mammoth's conference for affluent consumers who prefer virtual relationships to the real things. But early in her contract, Sloane starts picking up on cues that physical intimacy is going to make a major comeback, leaving many--Sloane included--to question if the forty year old's intuitions are as dependable as they once were. And if Sloane goes rogue against her all-powerful employer, will she be able to let in the love and connectedness she's long been denying herself?
A poignant but amusing call to arms that showcases Courtney Maum's signature humor, Touch is a moving investigation into what it means to be an individual in a globalized world.
