"He fixes everything that's wrong with you in three days." This is the alluring promise that first hooks Sam when he overhears it at a party in the Hollywood Hills: the story of a globe-trotting master healer who claims to perform "open-soul surgery" on the emotionally damaged. And the shaman seems convincing--enough for neurotic, depressed Sam to sign up for a weekend under his care. But as Sam begins his slippery descent into the seductive world of modern mysticism, he'll be forced to reckon with his troubled past, his self-delusions and the very nature of what it means to be well. At turns tender and acid, bracing and wise, Broken People is a dazzling modern parable about hope, faith and the stories we tell ourselves about who we are.
