Abstract:

"The sixteen stories in Eating Naked range from surreal to poignant, from chilling to comic. At the center of them all are men and women challenged by their own uncontrollable, illogical natures: poets with free-floating guilt, spouses with unacceptable sexual compulsions, farmers with midlife crises, gas men with erratic timetables. Marriages unravel, well-laid plans dissolve, and placid lives are turned upside down by something unforeseen - be it as mundane as a chance conversation, as inevitable as death, as improbable as a murderous pig."--Jacket.
