Sean Lacey

about this book: In the Great Depression a boy's body is public property; there is no right to privacy from other boys, baby sitters, teachers, nurses, doctors, nuns, or priests. Sean Lacey is not only modest, he has a body to be modest about, a body that makes him an unwilling target for unwelcome attentions.

Follow Sean through his battles during the 1930s and World War II.

Reviews:

• "A well written and touching account of a childhood in the days of the depression and leading into the war. The author has captured the feelings and anxieties of a young boy's coming of age with all the turmoil that goes with it, with plenty of spice and emotion tossed in."

• "Make no mistake about it: it is earthy, and if earthiness bothers you, don't open the book. That understood, if you have a liberal turn of mind with a sense of humor, once you're into I Knew I Was Naked, you won't put it down."

• "A frighteningly refreshing account of innocence, dominance, and growth in a young American boy. The author leads us through his journey, through his eyes, and as his innocence fades away, so does the reader's."
