Alex is a successful artist who does important work for the world of fashion and advertising, but... Who is he really? Where did he come from? How did he get to become a recognized artist and make a living from it? This book is Alex’s story, but it could be that of many other kids who don’t seem to fit in. ‘Different’ people looking for a way to survive in a hostile environment, and trying to hatch a plan to escape... who in spite of all the difficulties, pitfalls and blows continue to cling on to life in all its facets; good and bad, beautiful and grotesque, great and insignificant.
Even if you’re born in the wrong time and place, even if you’re different from the rest, never stop trying to find your path to happiness.
