About this product
- DescriptionA man in a troubled marriage tries to learn from the example of his charismatic friend, a bestselling author who hasn't abandoned his youthful convictions. A story of divergent paths, Adherence examines characters pushed to the limits of what they can understand, one struggling with suburban life while the other wrestles with self-image and artistic devotion. Set throughout Chicago and shadowed by race and class, this short vel is a rich portrait of the public and private divides that define American life.
