Nine Kinds of Naked by Tony Vigorito

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

I'll make this short and sweet. The avenue down which the novel heads is unique and lightly touched upon, but it is nonetheless overly sarcastic and dreadfully dull. Just when you think you're going to find out something amazing, Vigorito disappoints by focusing the storyline on his own passionate social/political/humanistic beliefs; which adds nonsensical drivel about unrelated topics like self-respect, freedom and love. The book is all over the place and very hard to get through -- not to mention the horrible lala land fairy tale that coincides with the main story line. I had to skim after page 150 because the book wasn't going anywhere.
