"Working alone, often late at night and almost always in the nude, Samaras turned his cluttered apartment into an impromptu Theater of the Ridiculous with himself as both willing cast and inspired crew...[in this book] Images--usually antic, erotic variations on a theme--are reproduced in their original size in color and black-and-white, and arranged in grids, in rows, or singly on a page as if in a family snapshot album or a demented high school yearbook."--Vince Aletti in Andrew Roth, ed., The Book of 101 Books.
Also included in Alessandro Bertolotti's "Books of Nudes".
