Another book by Thomas Farber

Heads up for another book by Thomas Farber entitled Brief Nudity which is out in May. Alan Williamson, author of Almost a Girl: Male Writers and Female Identification, says of the book: "Philip Larkin wrote of the moment in life when our "innate assumptions" and daily habits "Suddenly harden into all we've got." This beautifully written memoir dwells in that moment, its call to self-judgment, its unexpected openness to possibility. Brief Nudity will please and instruct all who are starting to think about their own aging." Thomas is the author of among other books, the two wonderfully reflective volumes on surfing and water entitled Face of the Deep and On Water.
