Broken Things is a journey of boys who were born men. It is a ruminative recount of miseries and struggles of those who were forced into maturity. The collection seeks to find answers in dark places - sex, religion and tradition - and under flickering lights of love and heroism. It is a voice of pain attempting to speak healing under the thick shadows of wariness. It is a diary of boys travelling back to find shards of innocence - away from blue memories.
