When does a psychic know he's clairvoyant and not whacked-out nuts? In the mainstream novel, Fighting Gravity, 33-year-old Brian Thompson has dodged the truth for most of his life, but lately a persistent vision derails him with the revelation of a murder--not just any murder, but the brutal death of his new upstairs neighbor, a gorgeous flirt, Sandra Stein.
It's free-fall time for Brian. His detested job as an art director at a Boston ad agency is constant stress, he's adjusting to single life after a bitter divorce, and now he can't decide whether to acknowledge his prophetic ability, let alone warn his neighbor about her impending death.
His gay colleague, the colorful and amusing Frank, encourages Brian to explore a New Age solution. Though he's skeptical, Brian begins therapy with a psychiatrist, a doctor who happens to be clairvoyant. As his life unravels, his psychic shrink guides him on a transformational passage.
This is like Tony Soprano without the evil mother and the gun wielding posse.
