Summary
Set amidst the large and prosperous Indian community in mid-20th century Trinidad, The mystic masseur is a magical, bittersweet fable about Ganesh, a young, aspiring author whose unexpected talents as a healer bring him local fame and enable him to realize his ambitions as a writer. But he also realizes his limitations when his reputation as the legendary "mystic masseur" propels him to national renown and draws him far from his roots and his true self.
