 About the Book 

Naked Sleeper is about a love triangle between Nona (a person who cant sleep), her husband Roy, and Lyle, a married writer Nona meets at a writers retreat where she has gone to work on a book about her parents lives, specifically her abandonmentMoreNaked Sleeper is about a love triangle between Nona (a person who cant sleep), her husband Roy, and Lyle, a married writer Nona meets at a writers retreat where she has gone to work on a book about her parents lives, specifically her abandonment by her father as a child. Nonas memoir becomes part of the text of Naked Sleeper itself so the reader watches several stories unfold simultaneously: that of Nonas relationship with Roy and Lyle, with her mother Rosalind who hates the idea of her daughters book, and with her phantom father, a man who Nona comes to understand and forgive the moment she delves into his past. Naked Sleeper is very much a love story: of women for men, but also of mothers for daughters, of parents for children.
