    Reading James Domine's striking novel The Naked Man is a riveting experience that pulled me into the company of comic characters who inhabit the dingy bars and dark alleys of suburban Los Angeles. Its raw dialogue made me feel as though I was sitting at the bar or on a beat-up couch, drinking a beer while listening to serious discussions of government conspiracy theories, stalkers, flashers and infidelities interrupted only by tantrums and police raids. The author captures the same sense of alienation present in the writing of Raymond Carver with an added dash of comic seasoning.

    "Naked Man by James Domine" Naked Man made me feel included, as if the author were present during the hundreds of sideways conversations I have had in bars and alleys through the years. He is exceptional at character recognition and development. It's a zoomy, private, giddy read. This book has so much presence, so much soul, so dead on accurate. It's an intimate book, making it feel like he is talking to an individual rather than the general masses. This time period is so juicy in our cultural history, and Domine did a great job of schooling us, of bestowing an honorary hip degree on it's readers, giving us humor and sensitivity credits all the way through.
