Agoraphobics in Love

An eShort Story

Agoraphobics in Love

After the accidental death of her parents, Emily retreated to their home, where she freelances for an online greeting card company and tries to come up with words for feelings she can no longer feel.  Jules climbed his way up to creative director of an advertising agency; he had power, a girlfriend, and a great apartment in New York, when he started having the panic attacks that would leave him in a tiny sublet, unemployed and alone.  But when Emily and Jules both join an online board for agoraphobics, what begins as friendship quickly develops into something much more.  Now if only they can find the courage to leave their “safety zones” and actually meet for the first time...

Witty, wistful, and deeply moving, “Agoraphobics in Love” is an O. Henry story for the twenty-first century.  In sparkling prose, Lisa Tucker perfectly captures the miracle of two lonely people finding each other—and finding their way back to life.
