Recommended Reading


Daron's Guitar Chronicles is the best coming-of-age tale I have ever read.


Daron's growth and evolution provides the umbrella story. Underneath that are multiple stories dealing with rock and roll in the 1980s, the record industry, dysfunctional families, coming out, dealing with adversity, mental illness, the meaning of fidelity, and at least a dozen others. The stories are told in threads that intertwine, disappear and reappear later, but all are tied to Daron's coming of age.

The Chronicles are also available on-line at http://daron.ceciliatan.com/. The writing is superb, the characters are so realistic that many aficionados treat them as actual people. If you read on-line, start at the beginning. There's not a wasted chapter, sentence or word.
