Daron’s Guitar Chronicles tells the story of Daron Marks, a young gay guitar player, from about the time he is eighteen onward. He arrives at RIMCon (Rhode Island Musical Conservatory) in the mid-1980s, desperate to leave behind a dysfunctional family in New Jersey’s suburbs and discover himself. It’s the advent of MTV, AIDS, and punk versus metal, all of which will affect his journey searching for fame, artistic expression, and the courage to seek out the love he needs. Daron struggles with staying in the closet as much as he struggles to get his music heard. 
    
    Daron’s Guitar Chronicles is a "bildungsroman," which is a fancy word for a novel where the coming of age process is long and gradual. It runs as a twice-a-week web serial at http://daron.ceciliatan.com where there are extras like liner notes, song lyrics, art, fan art, and more.

I signed up for an account here just to be able to comment during the re-read. I don't know how often I'll find something to say that no one else has said before, but we'll see. And this is kind of a useless comment, but I think of the "fucked-up-edly spelled name" sentence everytime I hear Louis Delort & The Sheperds' (French band) current single, in which Led Zeppelin is mentioned. Which means I think of you/Daron/the story often because it's been one of my favorite songs these past four months (and of course also because there are other things that can, anywhere and at any time, remind me of something you/Daron wrote).
