5’2″ Homeless Model’s Story Generates International Appeal, Publisher Interest


Our story of Isobella Jade — the 5’2″ homeless model-slash-aspiring memoirist who says she wrote hers entirely in heels in the Soho Apple Store — and subsequent interview are generating a wee bit of international interest. We’re not kidding.

Last week we received a note from an editor at the London Observer magazine inquiring about Jade, who confirms the level of interest — and what’s she thinks is behind it — to FishbowlNY:

I have been getting quite alot of emails and buzz, and if you google Isobella + apple store … there is over 4 pages of articles. I even got news from a few well known publishers, considering meetings with them soon, since my story is a bit blunt, loud, and raw…I really am being careful with who I chose to work with.

Jade is prepping for a pair of West Coast Apple Store readings, including this July 15 date in San Francisco:
