21 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Laura is happily married, a mother and a successful novelist. Although prey to night terrors, she is adept at smoothing the disorder of reality into controlled prose. Interweaving memory, conversation and reflection, Walking Naked telescopes the whole of Laura's life - childhood, marriages, triumphs and disappointments - into a day in which the past and the present converge. It begins with a game of tennis played for duty rather than amusement and progresses, via an afternoon party of old friends, to a bewildering visit to Laura's son, who is imprisoned on a drugs charge. At it's close, the possibility of death within the family brings unresolved conflicts to centre stage and Laura strips herself of the posturing and self-deceit with which she has cloaked her vulnerability."--Publisher description
