Last week I learned that Naked and Hungry received its first review in a major media outlet. The review made the front page of the Books section of the Sunday, March 18 edition of the Greensboro News and Record.
Titled “Environmental Shenanigans, Southern Style,” reviewer Linda Brinson praises the book for its balance of humor and environmental awareness. The article isn’t yet available online so I’ll provide a brief excerpt below.
“If you had to slot Memory’s slim novel into a fictional genre, it probably would land somewhere in the realm of Southern comedy and satire. Memory, who lives in Pittsboro, knows her territory. She gets the details of 21st-century small-town North Carolina right. She obviously enjoys poking a little fun at such staples as good ol’ boys, restless housewives, hypocritical preachers and slickly crooked politicians. The humor isn’t too heavy-handed, however, and as a result, the book is really funny.”
The same week that I learned of this review, Naked and Hungry was also mentioned in the College Bookshelf section of the spring issue of Arts & Sciences Magazine (page 31) which is the alumni magazine of the College of Arts and Sciences at Carolina.
These mentions wouldn’t have been possible without the loyalty of a growing network of “Naked” fans, who continue to help spread the word throughout the state and beyond. Again, I thank you.
