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.
