Blake's Therapy

Ariel Dorfman

Blake's Therapy is a whirlwind ride through the desires of one man to find something real in a virtual world. After suffering a mental breakdown, Graham Blake checks into the Corporate Life Therapy Institute, where the self-assured, silver-tongued Dr. Carl Tolgate has prepared a strange, shocking, and erotic treatment. Now Blake must find out, before it is too late, who is controlling his life, his companys future, and his own heart.

A work of intense psychological intrigue, Blake's Therapy holds a magnifying glass to one mans life as it unravels in a world of economic turmoil and spiritual crisis.
