"Nude is a riot you won't want to miss."
"This is fine, funny, often disturbing, original material. It's ribald and
bizarre. It reminds me of early John Irving: somewhat unbelievable and even
cruel in parts, but in the end the reader has a damn good time with it."
"Wuori moves through the collection with an assured voice that's as
adept as humor as it is at less savory fare....Wuori has placed a
memorable new town on the literary map. Just be glad you can't get
there from here."
