Literary Nonfiction. Set in Thomas Farber's Berkeley cottage, BRIEF NUDITY's nonfiction narratives move across three decades, appraising the meaning of both home and the impulse to put one's house in order. Taking the measure of aging, desire, and memory in an inevitably finite life for and by art, Brief Nudity also illuminates the very human effort to devine--or deny--one's true story. "Philip Larkin wrote of the moment in life when our 'innate assumptions' and daily habits 'Suddenly harden into all we've got.' This beautifully written memoir dwells in that moment, its call to self-judgment, its unexpected openness to possibility. BRIEF NUDITY will please and instruct all who are starting to think about their own aging"--Alan Williamson.
