About this book:

Through the telling of their own interlocking stories, two 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 Critics weigh in:

[…] packed with references to the streets of Chicago, popular and underground music, and an insider’s knowledge of the technical side of the life of a musician.

Littered with cigarette butts, vodka bottles, and a dead body, A Perfect Blindness is a grunge rock fantasy. With its operatic sense of drama, it is an escape story ideal for those who still live out their rock star dreams whenever they close their eyes.

—Forward Clarion Reviews (read the complete review here>>>)

Hunt writes in a dense, passionate prose that strives to enliven everything it touches.

[…] Hunt successfully conjures the story’s time and a place in masterful detail.

An expansive historical novel that ably evokes its time and place.

—Kirkus Reviews (read the complete review here>>>)

This vivid look at Chicago’s delusion-driven electro-industrial music scene in the late 1980s showcases W. Lance Hunt’s gift for capturing the era’s often foolish dreams and grungy realities.

[…] it’s smartly written and sharply atmospheric a worthy […] addition to the literature of rock n’ roll’s agony and ecstasy.

As the band rises on a fusion of euro-club danceability tinged with post-punk attitude, Hunt’s tireless, Jagermeister-fueled nightcrawlers give us a complete tour of North Side rock clubs in the ’80s—and of their own failings.

The triple view works well here, particularly as the characters’ dark secrets and motives become apparent.

Only Jennifer seems to grasp the friends’ common crisis of identity. “Who we really are hangs someplace between all the stories, suspended in the contradictions.”

—Blue Ink (read the complete review here>>>)

“Then turn me into a song. Or three. Preserve me. Preserve us.” These words would soon change everything. For all of us.

    1. Will Do. You can sign up for updates by clicking on the red “Join Now” button above. About one a month, weekly as the launch approaches, you’ll get an update on what is happening. The first thing as a special custom edited sample of from each of the three protagonists point of view. It’s 18 pages—a taste of story.

    2. Awaiting the galley proof right now. All content improved. Next step approve the final version, and it will be live around the world. Anticipating first week of May. Updates as I know.

    3. The soft cover version is now available on iUniverse. Full information will propagate across other platforms (B&N and Amazon specifically) in the next 6-8 weeks—seems it does this in bits and pieces. I have to mind that. The ebook versions will be available in 3-4 weeks. Not sure if that’s AFTER the 6-8, or simultaneously. I’m in the process of adding content here, including more playlists, location in formation, and info about Mercurial Visions, the band from the book.
