Mitch Albom releases a serialised story of hope for coronavirus pandemic

Mitch Albom releases a serialised story of hope for coronavirus pandemic

Popular American author Mitch Albom is currently writing a free, serialised story called Human Touch in order to raise awareness for coronavirus relief in his home city, Detroit.

Albom is a bestselling author, screenwriter, playwright and journalist. He is best known for his books Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven.

Human Touch focuses on a specific street corner in small-town Michigan, following the households that live on the block. Although the members of the four households are usually friendly, they turn suspicious and mistrustful as they are forced to distance from their neighbours during coronavirus.

A young boy from one of the households, Little Moses, is the exception to this attitude. He continues to visit his neighbours in secret to offer comfort, until his mother reveals a long-held secret: her son is immune to everything due to an anomaly in his blood.

This makes him a medical curiosity, and then a target, and when Little Moses goes missing, the neighbourhood must band together once more to seek his safe return.

New chapters of Human Touch are available weekly here and are also free on the audio-book platform, Audible.

It is the first of what is likely many coronavirus-inspired books and stories to come.
