Review

Westbury's Bride Stripped Bare itself contains many layers. It has, among other elements, a road trip, an unusual love triangle, cross-dressing, anagrams, off-kilter theories of religion, a handmade chocolate grinder, and a see-how-many-balls-I-can-keep-in-the-air comic structure that adds to the novel's overall buoyancy." - Edmonton Journal

"Part treatise on art appreciation, part humorous on-the-road tale, neuropsychologist Westbury's debut novel offers a compelling story about the role art can play to disrupt, delay, and contribute to human engagement with the real world." - Booklist

"It's a sweet story, and it builds inevitably to a happy ending." - Kirkus

"Clever, funny, and fun, and filled with great discussions about art" - BookRiot

"Bright aesthetic discussion amid mishap; not just for the college-nostalgic but for anyone who enjoys a rush of ideas while being entertained." - Library Journal, Top Summer Reads 2014

"Westbury, a cognitive neuropsychologist at the University of Alberta (Edmonton), has plenty to say about art and attention, about the line between sanity and mental illness, and about the nature of a well-lived life... Westbury's debut is a call to pay attention, and a reminder of the rewards of patience and open eyes." Barnes & Noble Review
