Sunbathing Naked Summary


Sunbathing Naked: and Other Miracle Cures - A Memoir by Guy Kennaway

Sunbathing Naked is one man's quest to understand the skin we're in and why we're all so obsessed with it. From the waiting rooms of Harley Street to the naked-sunbathing terraces of the Dead Sea, Kennaway navigates a multitude of cures for the incurable, telling his own provocative tale alongside the stories of a riotous identity-parade of doctors, quacks, patients and the smooth-skinned few that he meets along the way. This smart, hilarious and upbeat memoir is for anyone who has ever tried to cover up a spot, or felt their body was less than perfect.

Sunbathing Naked Reviews


Praise for One People Kennaway fills his stories with a warmth and humanity capable of brightening the chilliest morning * * Heat * *
Hilarious. * * Daily Telegraph * *
Kennaway's satirical portrait of life in a small Jamaican community ripples with humour and crystal clear seas . . . like Keillor, his prose is even better read aloud. * * Independent * *
This year's funniest, most thoroughly likeable novel. A fantastical yet believable microcosm of life. * * GQ * *
Like Garrison Keillor, but with stronger material. * * Arena * *
Kennaway . . . looks at the prejudiced world with a sense of satire . . . Utterly unsentimental, though always unfllinching . . . Kennaway uses case histories to great effect and pokes fun at the array of suggested cures. -- Martin Tierney * * Herald * *
