From the Publisher
Gavin James Bower's first novel is an astonishing debut. Written in a terse, vivid prose his sharp, ironic tone eviscerates the superficiality of a glittering world where nothing is what it seems and chaotic despair is never far away.See all Product description

Anyone who has lived in London in the 1990s/ 2000s will appreciate how well he sets the city's scene. The plot moves gently at first before sweeping both the main character and the reader up into unexpected twists. Bower doesn't glamourise modeling neither does he present it as a seedy industry that uses and abuses those involved. It is what it is, like any other place of work it has its advantages and its disadvantages that Bower takes us through. I look forward to reading more from this young author and recommend this book to anyone seeking an accessible, satisfying read or as a gift for anyone who likes Brett Easton Ellis.
Max Wallis - Modern Love (The Flap Pamphlet Series)
Written with refreshing honesty and clarity the author speedily takes control of our emotions.There is humour and intense sadness as well as scenes that will surprise or shock!
It is an enlightening read for any age or gendar and certainly deserves more shelf space in the high street bookshops.
I would definitely recommend this book...
A fast paced rollercoaster of a read; a revealing glimpse into an untouchable world, with a fresh perspective. Dazed and Aroused provoked mixed emotions for a complex character; the beautiful Alex. Snappy, witty and captivating.
