"By now I was feeling the booze, but I wasn't drunk, not all the way. That was another extraordinary thing: at that age I could really hold it. Nowadays after a few drinks I'm good for nothing the next day, low on energy, depressed, morose, like an old fart.
"I was renting a basement, a hovel, really, at an absurdly low rate, on Park Street, but it never deterred any of the women I brought there, and there were quite a few. If the dust that coated everything bothered them, they didn't complain. If the unwashed dishes in the bathtub frightened them, they didn't say. If they saw from the surroundings that I wasn't fixed like a man going places in the world, it didn't seem to make a difference.
"Best of all, I didn't give a damn what they thought. That's how a man should always live. I had it once. So why did I give it all up?"

[Mark SaFranko, Sometimes You Just Don't Want To Know]

Max Zajack's life is in flux. After the parade of women charted in Lounge Lizard and the grind of dead-end jobs endured in Dirty Work, perhaps an ordinary existence is Max's best path. But normality has its own problems...and its own secret escapes.

Sometimes You Just Don't Want To Know is the fifth of Mark SaFranko's series of Max Zajack books and it chronologically follows the critically acclaimed Lounge Lizard. To what extent can the promiscuous Max finally settle down yet still retain his artistic ambition?

Mark SaFranko's latest work is introduced by M.G. Sanchez, who writes: "I like to see him as the Rembrandt of the confessional novel, repeatedly projecting his wounded 'self' on to the canvass of his literary works, continually startling us with the unflinching objectivity with which he portrays his alter ego Max Zajack at different life stages."
