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.
Portions of this book were originally published online and in literary magazines under the moniker “Caged Boy Sings.”

AT SEVENTEEN, Jinx is doing a below-average job of staying out of trouble.
In her defense, being the first and only reject from the Virtual World she was born to enter was a bit of a bummer.
While every other denizen on her space station trains for their future life in the VR (a virtual reality designed for discovering higher wisdom and recording it), Jinx prepares for Galactic Release by shifting her trouble-making into overdrive.
When she isn’t sneaking into restricted areas, she’s devising ways to check on, Laris — the only denizen she cares for.
But when the space station’s VR goes into lockdown, trapping Laris and thousands more, Jinx is pulled into a mystery. Her race to uncover the truth reveals galactic thugs hunting her kind, an annoying zealot undermining her every move, and a hazardous virtual landscape to navigate.
So yeah, Jinx has got her hands full.
Fortunately, she’s got a waggish geek and an ice cream addicted tween AI who’ll risk their backsides to make sure she fulfills her so-called destiny. Not to mention a few new powers that’ll come in handy . . . if she can stay alive long enough to discover them.
Fingers crossed she’ll master her inner hero. The survival of Laris, humanity, and all organic life depends on it.
But hey, no pressure. She’s got till the end of the day.
If you like a kickass heroine with a sense of humor and a dash of snark, well then, meet Jinx.
I love Jinx. The prose is excellent. The emotion is so often exquisitely handled. The ideas are fun, especially the crossbreeding between the spiritual and the science fictional. The dialogue is crisp and often hilarious, and I got very emotionally invested. — Amy Bennet, Former Locus magazine editor and critically acclaimed and agented novelist.
