"Nude is a riot you won't want to miss."
Frederick Barthelme

"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."
Stephen Dixon

Review Highlights:
"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."
--New York Times Book Review
