Nine Kinds of Naked
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Join cult favorite Tony Vigorito in his acclaimed, surreal whirlwind of a novel exploring chaos theory. A prisoner spins a playing card into a somersault, stirring a wind that becomes a tornado that takes off the roof of a church in nearby Normal, Illinois. Elizabeth Wildhack is born in that church and someday she will meet that prisoner, a man named Diablo, on the streets of New Orleans--where a hurricane-like Great White Spot hovers off the coast. But how is it all interconnected? And what does it have to do with a time-traveling serf and a secret society whose motto is "Walk away?"
"Linguistic gymnastics abound... Vigorito demonstrates once again that he's a wild stylist... startlingly original... an entertaining anarchist..." --The Chicago Sun-Times

Gluttonous in the best possible way
Like Tom Robbins before him, but perhaps with a more pressing need to exclaim his themes, Vigorrito paints with words, using large clumps of oily pastels to color vivid scenes in primal hues. If you love words, Tony positively thrills in them. His use of language is like a song that you want to hear over and over again. I haven't loved reading anything so much since, and sorry for the second comparison, Jitterbug Perfume. An absolute delight.
