Blind Turn

Blind Turn

By Todd Garlington


How many images does a person see over a lifetime? Where does advertising end and self-image begin? In media-saturated Los Angeles, the chauffeur Martin Tate has seen it all. Or has he? Privy to the lives of various passengers, he pieces together the story that connects a model, a musician, and a mogul. But they have their own stories to tell—and their own corners to turn. Where do they stand in the culture of the maze? Martin learns more than he cares to know. How long can he remain a spectator, or has he been participating all along?

Enter Blind Turn, a world of slick high-rises, ornate mansions, and roadways packed with ambition. Through the eyes of characters at different stages in life comes an urban portrait capturing the glossy surface and bottomless pit of desire. Will Mira find happiness? Will Godfrey make his comeback? Will Vincent finally escape? Goals abound, but is the outcome ever as expected? Amid the power plays, petty reprisals, and fantasies of adoration, an individual strains to find dignity. But all is not lost. The city of dreams occasionally presents an opportunity to wake up.
