"Like Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, [The Answers] is also a novel about a subjugated woman, in this case not to a totalitarian theocracy but to subtler forces its heroine is only beginning to understand and fears she is complicit with." --Dwight Garner, New York Times
Mary Parsons is broke. Dead broke, really: between an onslaught of medical bills and a mountain of credit card debt, she has been pushed to the brink. Hounded by bill collectors and still plagued by the painful and bizarre symptoms that doctors couldn’t diagnose, Mary seeks relief from a holistic treatment called Pneuma Adaptive Kinesthesia―PAKing, for short. Miraculously, it works. But PAKing is prohibitively expensive. Like so many young adults trying to make ends meet in New York City, Mary scours Craigslist and bulletin boards for a second job, and eventually lands an interview for a high-paying gig that’s even stranger than her symptoms or the New Agey PAKing.
Mary’s new job title is Emotional Girlfriend in the “Girlfriend Experiment”―the brainchild of a wealthy and infamous actor, Kurt Sky, who has hired a team of biotech researchers to solve the problem of how to build and maintain the perfect romantic relationship, cast - ing himself as the experiment’s only constant. Around Kurt, several women orbit as his girlfriends with spe - cific functions. There’s a Maternal Girlfriend who folds his laundry, an Anger Girlfriend who fights with him, a Mundanity Girlfriend who just hangs around his loft, and a whole team of girlfriends to take care of Intimacy. With so little to lose, Mary falls headfirst into Kurt’s messy, ego-driven simulacrum of human connection.
Told in Catherine Lacey’s signature spiraling, hypnotic prose, The Answers is both a mesmerizing dive into the depths of one woman’s psyche and a critical look at the conventions and institutions that infiltrate our most personal, private moments. As Mary struggles to understand herself―her body, her city, the trials of her past, the uncertainty of her future―the reader must confront the impossible questions that fuel Catherine Lacey’s work: How do you measure love? Can you truly know someone else? Do we even know ourselves? And listen for Lacey’s uncanny answers.Read More

In Stan Romanek's first book MESSAGES, we held on to our seats through the wild ride that was his life leading up to the follow-up book, ANSWERS.
We had our heart strings tugged while learning of his lonely childhood with a giant secret that no adult would believe and no child should have to bear.
We understood his anguish and fear that he might be mentally ill. After all, these things that were happening to him couldn't be real. Could they?
Then Stan presented the evidence to us. The overwhelming mountain of evidence that makes his case the most documented ET experience known. We, the readers, slowly realized along with Stan that we're not crazy. Not only are we not crazy, but we're on the cusp of something really big. We realized that the information coming through is of global and universal significance.
But, what is the information? What is the message that lies just outside our awareness?
We get these "answers" in Stan's new book!Read More
When Violence Is the Answer: Learning How to Do What It Takes When Your Life Is at Stake
When Violence Is the Answer: Learning How to Do What It Takes When Your Life Is at Stake Features In a civilized society, violence is rarely the answer. But when it is-it's the only answer.
The sound of breaking glass downstairs in the middle of the night.
The words, "Move and you die."
The hands on your child, or the knife to your throat.
In this essential new book, self-protection expert and former military intelligence officer Tim Larkin changes the way we think about violence in order to save our lives. By deconstructing our assumptions about violence-its morality, its function in modern society, how it actually
works-Larkin unlocks the shackles of our own taboos and arms us with what we need to know to prevent, prepare for, and survive the unthinkable event of life-or-death violence. Through a series of harrowing true-life stories, Larkin demonstrates that violence is a tool equally effective in the hands of the "bad guy" or the "good guy"; that the person who acts first, fastest and with the full force of their body is the one who survives; and that each and every one of us is capable of being that person when our lives are at stake.
An indispensable resource, When Violence is the Answer
will remain with you long after you've finished reading, as the bedrock of your self-protection skills and knowledge. Read More
