"Shed clothing. Shed government. Shed God."

So goes the creed of Harold Gomberg, a bombastic, libertarian atheist and nudist with a four-foot bong. Behold a man who's more comfortable exposing his aging frame than his feelings.

Gloria Gomberg disapproves of her father's pathological mission of liberation. But should a wine-chugging nervous tic of a human really be judging

Jonathan Bloom's THE NUDIST lands somewhere in the concentric circles of John Kennedy O'Toole, Richard Russo and John Cheever. It's incredibly funny with an unsentimental humanity. An honest, smart and hilarious look at what happens to family over time. Great, memorable characters that stay with you. A joy to read that's perfect for summer.

Fans of Sam Lipsyte, Todd McEwen, Philip Roth, Gary Shteyngart et al will find lots to love here.

This is a little gem! Funny, insightful and full of heart. It’s a father-daughter story, but anyone who’s had a parent or guardian with whom they don’t easily identify will love it.
