The long-awaited sequel to 'Like Warm Sun on Nekkid Bottoms', 'Pride and Nakedness, Book One' is a contemporary re-telling of the first book in the classic novel, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Petal Nuckeby is a talkative, witty, charmer; a middle child in the rather extensive Nuckeby clan, a family of nudists who live and work in a clothing optional resort by the sea. Life has been hard for them, slogging away in the low-paying family restaurant business all their lives, so when the entire family is handed the opportunity to move from their rundown, shack on the shore into an expensive, high class neighborhood with the wealthy Peter Bingley living alongside, they leap at the chance.
Before long, Petal’s eternally sweet and stunningly beautiful sister, Feather, is dating Peter and trying to navigate the difficult waters of Peter’s best friend, William, and the rocky shoals of his sisters, Caroline, and the other one who’s name no one ever remembers.
William hates Petal and the rest of the Nuckeby’s almost as violently as Peter’s sisters do. Or maybe ‘hate’ is too strong a word for what William feels for Feather’s beloved sister. Maybe love is more accurate. Or maybe it is hate. Or intrigue? Lust? Definitely lust.
Confusion! Confusion is probably the most accurate word for what William feels about the pretty, sharp-witted Petal. Passionate, intense, confusion. Because she’s beautiful, aggravating, smarter than any woman he’s ever met, and seems to legitimately have no interest in his many riches.
A family comedy of manners, social mores, nakedness and pride, prejudice and love. The first of a three part trilogy re-telling the brilliant Jane Austen’s greatest work, 'Pride and Nakedness' is 'Pride and Prejudice' for a contemporary audience, and it is touching, sexy and hilarious.
