Publisher Description:

A woman's feminist awakening drives a hypocritical village to madness in rural Uruguay in this wild, brutal paean to freedom (NPR.org).

Shortlisted for the National Translation Award

Somers' feminism is profound, and complicated. --NPR.org

"A surreal, nightmarish book about women's struggle for autonomy--and how that struggle is (always, inevitably) met with violence." --Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties

When The Naked Woman was originally published in 1950, critics doubted a woman writer could be responsible for its shocking erotic content. In this searing critique of Enlightenment values, fantastic themes are juxtaposed with brutal depictions of misogyny and violence, and frantically build to a fiery conclusion.

Finally available to an English-speaking audience, Armonía Somers will resonate with readers of Clarice Lispector, Djuna Barnes, and Leonora Carrington.
