When a man who claims to be from outer space is brought into the Manhattan Institute, the mental ward seems to be just the place for him. However this patient is unlike anyone psychiatrist Dr. Gene Brewer has had under his care before. Calling himself 'prot', he has no traceable background but says that he is an inhabitant of the planet K-PAX, a perfect world without wars, government or religion, and where every being coexists in harmony. Setting a departure date - August 17th at 3.31am - on which he plans to return home on a beam of light, 'prot' keeps us guessing right up until the end.

About the Author:

Before becoming a novelist, Gene Brewer studied DNA replication and cell division at several major research stations. He is the author of ON A BEAM OF LIGHT, K-PAX II and the forthcoming K-PAX III, published in summer 2002, which will complete the K-PAX trilogy. He lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

When the story and narrator of an audiobook are good, the listener wants to know the ending. But you can't skip ahead, or you would with K-PAX, Gene Brewer's novel about a psychiatrist's sessions with "prot," a mental patient who claims to have traveled to Earth from the planet K-Pax. Tom Casaletto's narration, particularly his inflections for prot and for Dr. Gene Brewer, is superb. Especially memorable is the derisive tone in which prot speaks about human behavior. Although Dr. Brewer believes prot is mentally ill, he can never explain prot's disappearances, or his ability to diagnose and cure people. Casaletto's tone conveys the psychiatrist's certainty that prot is human, while allowing the story to build to a conclusion that leaves the listener wondering what reality really is.
