Summary:

"Ever since his girlfriend dumped him, Thomas Rosanoff's life is on a downward spiral. A gifted med student, he has spent his entire adulthood struggling to escape the legacy of his father, an esteemed psychiatrist who used him as a test subject when he was a boy. Thomas lived his entire young life as the "Boy in the Box," watched by researchers behind two-way glass. But now the tables have turned. Thomas is the researcher, and his subjects are three homeless men, all of whom claim to be messiahs--but no three people can be the one and only savior of the world. Thomas is determined to "cure" the three men of their delusions, and in so doing save his career-and maybe even his love life. But when Thomas's father intervenes in the experiment, events spin out of control and Thomas must confront the voices he hears in the labyrinth of his own mind. The Shoe on the Roof is an explosively imaginative tour de force, a novel that questions our definitions of sanity and madness, while exploring the magical reality that lies just beyond the world of scientific fact."-- Provided by publisher.
