First published in England to international acclaim in 1997, Jeffrey Round's classic novel, A Cage of Bones, now appears in a new edition. At the beginning of the '90s, an ingenuous young Torontonian named Warden Fields is persuaded to work as a model in Europe's fashion capitals. Italy revels in the opulent splendour of designers like Versace and Ferré, while England is still reeling from the anarchic punk revolution of a decade before. In Italy, Warden is introduced to a world of sensuality and passion, while his relationship with an underground British rock star draws him into illegal political intrigue. Sensitive and subtle, this finely crafted novel weaves together tragic and comic themes in a moving story as its protagonist goes from pop culture icon, through pariah to liberated spirit.
