The Unknown, is an autobiographical book that takes a look into a world where most, ultimately and understandably, look the other way.

Joseph Minervino, author of The Unknown, tells his story which takes place in a combination of New York City and Connecticut. His original intentions when writing this book, unable to “shake-off” his eerie past, was for self-healing purposes:

“When I started to write this book about two years ago, shortly after the seventh anniversary of 9/11, my primary motivation was psychological welfare. I needed answers to many unanswered questions, for sanity’s sake. There were too many variables though to do the math in my head. I had to do it long hand, and as a result, wrote this book one truth at a time.”

Joe sees the abuse within his home through his lunatic father and psychopathic mother, and how it eventually pushes his identical twin brother off the edge. He also sees the abuse in the outside world; within schools, companies, government, and religion. Disgusted and angry, he rises up against evil, finding himself in a position to make a difference.

Overall, The Unknown takes a closer look at abuse, its counterparts, and even digs a little deeper regarding genocide and terrorism… Clearly, there’s much room for improvement. For additional information, or to inquire, please visit
