Set in Austin, Texas, Visible Man is about therapist Victoria Vick’s  new patient, Y–(name not given to protect his identity) who claims to be able to make himself invisible. He uses this scientifically created power to observe people for hours in their homes when no one else is around. Patient Y truly believes only by observing someone when he or she believes no one is watching can you really know that person. The novel is written as if its a nonfiction book featuring the notes and transcriptions of the recording of the therapist’s sessions with the patient.
