Set in San Francisco in 1956, The Broken Bubble traces the ups and downs and ins and outs of four characters who are not quite sure of the lives they’re living. Jim Briskin, local radio DJ; his ex-wife Pat; the young married couple Art and Rachel Emmanual—all are acutely observed and sympathetically portrayed. Briskin is suspended from his job for refusing to read a particularly repellent ad, while Art foolishly gets mixed up in a group of absurd would-be revolutionaries. As they all get entangled and not quite disentangled with each other, it becomes apparent they are seeking only to live more or less happily ever after—and if not ever after, then at least for a while. Modest as it may seem, it is an ambition very difficult to achieve.
