Striking a pose. I write about the era of polaroids and cigarettes in @closetothebone.book and here's an image that's just a bit painful. An obsession with bony shoulders and collarbones morphed into a serious eating disorder that took years to heal. Shattering perceptions and unmasking pretty pictures to reveal what lies beneath informs the narrative of my writing debut.
