    Andy Nowicki (Author)
In this collection of stories, controversial author and fearless gadfly Andy Nowicki examines the lives of the desperate, the spiritually ravaged, and the emotionally obsessed: 'The Doctor and the Heretic,' depicts a forbidden love affair between a beautiful, wounded therapist and her troubled young patient, 'Autobiography of a Violent Soul,' a raw and intense memoir of youthful lusts and indiscretions, and 'Tears of the Damned,' in which a mass murderer finds himself in an alternate timeline where he never committed his brutal crimes. Readers will want to come back to these stories again and again, each time discovering something compelling and new. 'In his title story, Mr. Nowicki tells of two fraught personalities on a collision course that is erotic and spiritual at the same time. Equipped with a sensitive understanding of female psychology, the author portrays a middle age psychotherapist who unknowingly stands in greater need than her patients. Especially she needs the help of a certain much younger man who has come to see that his own discontents, or anguish really, are the results of human insufficiency, and indeed of life itself. This is a sophisticated piece of writing that affirms what we have already seen in this author's novels - a quest for higher values than our postmodern world is prepared to offer.' -Tito Perdue, author of The Node and other novels
