Abandoning his dreams, he dropped out of college to take care of his orphaned, brain-damaged younger brother. Now in his late thirties, Tobias must struggle to provide for his family, working dead-end jobs that fall far short of the academic career he had imagined. Then he wins the lottery. His financial worries eliminated, Tobias anticipates nothing but smooth sailing ahead for himself and the people he loves. But he soon finds that his amazing stroke of luck may threaten everything he holds dear. Over peaks and valleys, this uplifting journey will challenge everything we think we know about luck, life, and what we value most.

You Never Know depicts a world in which every question is an answer and every answer a new question, a world where nothing is certain except uncertainty. The reader will marvel at the incredible tale of the sweating corpse, suffer along with a young man who refuses to accept the fact that it is raining bananas, admire the perseverance of the shoemaker who invents a substance that makes heels invisible, shudder as voracious rats devour an unfortunate victim alive, and marvel as a nude defendant presents his case to a jury. LoCicero's satirical, philosophical, metaphysical romp spares no segment of society: the legal, medical, and theological experts are fair game, as are the reader and author themselves. LoCicero challenges us to do the most difficult thing of all: to think the unthinkable.

Who Knew? is a continuation of Romy Shiller's book You Never Know: A Memoir. Romy is considered a medical mystery and applies her previous interest and scholarly work on the body to her new physical reality. Romy's intense belief that we can meet and overcome challenges prompted her to write this book. People expect distress when faced with a life-altering situation. Who Knew? proves that there are options available to everyone when it comes to facing challenges. Romy looks at internalized ideas about the body. She provides a new approach to physicality (how we utilize the body) and image (how we perceive the body). Our culture is obsessed with looking a certain way. Opting out of conventional modes of appearance is liberating. This book and Romy's attitude are not about denial; they are about acceptance. Acceptance for Romy does not preclude change. It is more about blending realities, weaving the idea of identity. Fluctuation and adaptation are important qualities. Romy's non-malignant brain tumour operation and subsequent five-month coma have left her in a wheelchair, with a voice/speech impediment called dysarthria. Romy Shiller is proof we can overcome our challenges.
