The Naked Woman might be described as a fantastic and violent answer to the question of women's liberation - Kate Chopin's The Awakening meets Francisco Goya. Somers's novel is anti-Enlightenment in its searing critique of civility, and the suggestion that social progress can be achieved through current means.
