Psychiatrist Gene Brewer doesn't have a diagnosis for the mysterious new patient who calls himself "prot" (rhymes with goat). But this strange and likeable man cannot be--as he claims--from the planet K-PAX.
Or can he? Prot knows facts about space that are confounding the experts. He is soon revealing Dr. Brewer's own deepest pains and most sublime longings. And his tales of K-PAX have other patients competing to go along with him when he heads "home". Now the doctor is racing the clock to find prot's true identity before he losses a man whose "madness" might just save them all. . .
Published in a dozens countries with movie rights sold to the producer of Field of Dreams, K-PAX has touched the hearts and expanded the horizons of readers around the world. It promises to join Robert Heinlein's classic Stranger in a Strange Land as a moving, thought-provoking masterpiece of modern-day fiction.

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.
