When an agoraphobic man develops a relationship with a vivacious grocery
delivery woman, the order he prescribes to his apartment, and his world,
begins to crumble around him. Wesley Yorstead Goes Outside explores the life
of Wesley Yorstead, a thirty-three year old graphic novelist who suffers
from a severe case of agoraphobia that has kept him shut inside for over
five years. When he meets Happy Lafferty for the first time, delivering
groceries on behalf of her father’s neighborhood market, Wesley
can’t shake the inherent magnetism between them and seeks to get to
know this young woman who invades his space—both physical and mental.
As their relationship grows more intimate, the restrictions of his situation
become an even greater obstacle. When Happy’s past comes back to haunt
her, Wesley must decide if he can finally leave his apartment to help. A
meditation on anxiety, fear, and human connection, Wesley Yorstead Goes
asks the reader to consider what our fears take away from our lives,
and how we might overcome them.
