Publisher's Summary

Cult favorite Tony Vigorito invokes a kind of chaos theory in Nine Kinds of Naked that gleefully turns any expectation of time, space, or plot on its head.

©2008 Tony Vigorito (P)2014 ListenUp Production, LLC

What the Critics Say

"Chaos theory says that a tiny, almost imperceptible event can have large, even catastrophic coincidences: a butterfly flapping its wings in North America leads to a hurricane on another continent, for example. In this fictional take on chaos theory, several offbeat characters are linked by a single event that expands through time, sweeping them up in it and changing their lives. A traveler works a nifty trick with a playing card, and a tornado strikes a small Illinois town; a woman is born during the tornado and later meets the man who set it in motion; 1,200 years earlier, a man who is supposed to be stoned to death discovers he has an uncanny knack for surviving; and, back in the present day, another man speaks only in the present tense. Comparisons of this novel to the works of Tom Robbins are both obvious and appropriate: the story meanders around in an entertaining manner, never getting too serious about itself; the characters are splendidly loopy, close to caricature but never quite reaching it, and the situations in which they find themselves are comic, dramatic, and everything in between."

    This is a fun read!It reminded me of something Christopher Moore would write and that is GOOD!It's nonsensical but makes sense.Listen to it!Kristin Kalbli is a wonderful choice for a narrator.I was gifted this copy for a fair review.

    Story
    "Soothing combination of chaos and synchronicity"
    If you could sum up Nine Kinds of Naked in three words, what would they be?

    surprising, soothing, absurd


    What other book might you compare Nine Kinds of Naked to and why?

    I don't know if there's any story to which I could compare Nine Kinds of Naked, but Tony Vigorito's writing is in the same vein as Tom Robbins.


    Who was the most memorable character of Nine Kinds of Naked and why?

    Father JJ Speed/Special Agent JJ Speed was probably the most memorable, but Diablo was my favourite. I loved the way Kristin Kalbli voiced both his character and Elizabeth Wildhack. Those character voices were so pleasant and enjoyable to listen to, which made their already interesting conversations even better.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fantastic, layered story and a great audiobook. I look forward to listening to more of both the author and the narrator.
