With the same brilliant meld of zany humor, human emotion, and high truth that made his first novel, THE HOUSE OF GOD, a medical classic, Samuel Shem, himself a psychiatrist, plunges headlong into the world of contemporary psychoanalysis;, bringing to it all the same passion, comedy, and probing intent. In FINE we see psychoanalysis fifty years after Freud, its bizarre rigidity, its potential greatness. A Rich, many-leveled tale told with Shem's magical mix of the serious and the hilarious, FINE is an erotic love story ("all love stories are about three people"); a murder mystery (who is killing the shrinks of Boston?); a novel of modern relationships, and a tale of awesome self-discovery. In short, it is about life.
