Joe Bonomo "Live Nude Essay!" ~ Gulf Coast
Joe Bonomo's work of nonfiction "Live Nude Essay!" appears in Gulf Coast and contemplates aspects of nudity, and the author's discovery of sex and nakedness, as as way to urge us to value the wonders of the "clothed essay."
"I'm thinking of the clothed essay versus the nude essay. The clothed essay prizes craft and subtlety, evocation and song."
This essay captivates with its form: section breaks juxtapose the clothed beside the nude, with one section hinting at how "nude" an essay the writer could very well write if he were to so choose, and the reader winces, agreeing.
A thought-provoking, socially relevant read.
