Comments:

With this story, Silverberg broke into one of the most prestigious venues for science fiction, F&SF. It's a contemporary (late-fifties) story of a man with a talent for listening to people's problems, a real empathy for people and their situations. He comes to a small town, a tangled web of soap-opera proportions, and finds that being an empath isn't always safe.
