Product description

Review

"When Laurie calls into a late-night radio show to talk to a psychic, she has no idea that this connection will turn her world upside down. Before she can even speak, the psychic is able to discern an image from Laurie's childhood: an alien being Laurie saw four decades ago. The psychic is part of a cult-like organization known as Blue Awareness that believes humans share a common lineage with aliens. Laurie simply wants to be left alone, but Blue Awareness becomes increasingly menacing, as she discovers that the alien she saw as a child wants something from her now. This novel is both a sharp send-up of Scientology and an intriguing aliens-among-us-tale." --Booklist

"This novel has an inspiring premise and an even better plot. It's a hybrid between conventional novel and science fiction. At the end of any good book what readers ask themselves is, "What did it all mean?" and, more importantly, "What does it mean to my life?" These are questions that Radiomen asks in multiple ways." NY Journal of Books --New York Journal of Books

"Eleanor Lerman's odd, compelling novel can lay claim to showing its author's skill as a poet, especially in its bleak descriptions...Though the narrative proves engaging, it's the unconventional subject matter that proves most intriguing. Radiomen brings together an unlikely assortment of people and situations...Radiomen, may be science fiction, but, hardly a predictable or typical example of the genre, it may well appeal to those who think they never would read such pop lit and enjoy it." --NPR

"As Lerman's entertaining second novel winds to its conclusion, it'll leave readers wondering if there might be life out there." --Publishers Weekly
