|Summary, etc.:|| "Delbert Blanton is a very talented writer who has some interesting stories and interesting ideas. However, he is also an idiot, a binge-alcoholic who sometimes sleeps beneath the McCann Street Bridge in Kokomo, Indiana. Sometimes a person can be smart in one area but stupid in another, like a brilliant musician who is addicted to drugs. Well, this is the situation with Delbert. “The Adventures of Delbert” is a great book, but the author is a man with many issues, the bottle being his most conspicuous and most troublesome. F. Scott Fitzgerald was a drunk. Hunter S. Thompson was a drunk. Jack Kerouac was a drunk. Charles Bukowski was a drunk. Edgar Allen Poe was a drunk. There are many worse things a man can be: a rapist, a murder, a crooked hedge-fund manager who steals money from a working-man’s pension. So, Delbert has “good” company. If only TAOD would become as popular as, “The Great Gatsby,” then Delbert could drink Bordeaux wine nightly. (Update: Delbert has been sober since May 3, 2013, the night he was ambushed by three young punks outside of Big Daddy’s Show Club on Kokomo’s north side.)" -- Amazon.com
