At the center of The Adventure is a novel where through the telling of their own interlocking stories two close friends and the lover of one reveal the greater, more complex story of passion, music, and self-deception that together make up A Perfect Blindness. Set in Chicago of late 1980s and early 1990s, the city and its music scene become nearly as much of a character as the human protagonists while they each stumble toward their own realization that “Who we really are hangs someplace between all the stories, suspended in the contradictions.”
The Adventures in Self-Publishing play out across posts on “One Candle in the Darkness” a blog that has been following A Perfect Blindness from the decision to self-publish, through seeing it into print and now keeps tabs on its life in the market, warts and all, including the reasoning, assumptions, and rude truths smashed into. Along the way, the mystery of what a blog is good for gets explored, and perhaps revealed.
