9781450077446: I Knew I Was Naked: An American Boyhood

Earthy. Literate. Laced with a strong dose of Humor. Set during the Great Depression and World War II, the language of the novel recaptures the time. This is the story of Sean Lacey, an American boy of Irish descent. Sean is shy, shy about a body ahead of his age. In the 1930s grownups and bullies have no truck with boy-modesty. The tale begins when Sean is five and follows his trials a year at a time. The plot takes a turn at age 13 when Bryan O'Neill-Sean's near-opposite and self-appointed older brother-adds a new dimension. But trouble has a way of worming itself in. Bryan's loyalty never wavers, but Sean is tested to the breaking point and beyond . . . And in the end like all good books, it's a love story-but not your everyday kind of love story.
