In this raw and oftentimes brutal experimental memoir, Cameron Beyrent paints a vivid landscape of mental illness as he recounts the terrifying reactions he had to the pills meant to cure it.
Caged Boy Sings is a mind-altering, stiletto-throwing, unmedicated look inside the brain of author Cameron Beyrent.
As the story of Caged Boy Sings goes off the rails right out of the gate, the narrative dips into universes filled with characters that you never expected to meet—rent boys, mental patients, strippers, 20-somethings and more. The line between fiction and nonfiction is frequently challenged as the author guides the reader throughout the fragments of his imagination, searching for the shattered pieces of the truth throughout the rooms of his mind.
Caged Boy Sings is a book about the misplaced losers who are constantly wondering about who they’re supposed to be—and the unsung heroes who were put here to help us piece together the puzzle of our identities.
