Love and Connection in Colleen Oakley’s CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH
What if you were afflicted with a rare disorder that made you allergic to the human touch? How would you connect? How would you fall in love? Colleen Oakley explores this notion in her novel CLOSE ENOUGH TO TOUCH, called “heart-wrenching and humorous” (Publishers Weekly) and “a witty, inventive, and bittersweet story of a reclusive young woman forced to venture into the world” (Beth Hoffman).
