Cage of Bones by Jeffrey Round
Warden Fields, an ingenuous college student from Toronto, is discovered by an Italian model agency and persuaded to work in Europe. The story of Warden's quiet rise and dissolute fall unfolds in the glamorous and frenetic fashion world of Milan and the hip clubs of post-Punk London. My first full-length novel, A Cage of Bones was based largely on personal observations and experiences.
"A Cage of Bones reminds me of why I read and why I write."
