    To write with clarity in an often blurry world is a challenge The writer must find space, quiet, respite It helps to cultivate a writing space I first visited Tom Farber s humble cottage in Berkeley when the UC professor was tutoring me in essay writing I was a rambling college senior passing through Berkeley rather than studying there and I recall being instantly struck by the crisp simplicity of his cottage mostly barren white walls, a few black and white photos by water photographer Wayne Levin, a couple chairs, a bed, a room full of books, a desk So this is how he cranked out all those books with crystalline prose Very Zen, I said Zen Tom rebutted, This is Greek Specificity always Farber will never let a platitude slide in conversation, much less in his books He will search for the exact right words until they are found This, along with storytelling, seems to be Farber s greatest gift, one that is on display perhaps than ever in his new memoir, Brief Nudity, a sort of homage not just to his cottage and to the thinking, recording, searching, that has transpired inside its walls, but also to the west.I read it as a love letter to the quiet joy Farber has created in Berkeley and the friends he has made, a letter that unpacks his relationship to home, writing, himself, and the wacky beauty of California with honesty and wit One of my favorite passages begins to investigate why he came to California from his native Boston in the first place In California those post sixties years, many people were belatedly planning to return not just to school and credentialing but to where they grew up Abruptly, California was only where they d gone to get free of family or hometown until strong enough to be themselves Or perhaps time just had to pass, and California was where time could do that In some cases, departing California was about limit, defeat people couldn t make it without clan and childhood connections, either in their personal lives or in the world of work Or maybe it was blood and water, blood being thicker than, and in the end California was water There are memories of Farber s fascinating parents mother a famous writer and singer, father a legendary physician of lovers, voyages to Hawaii, Samoa, Greece, and beyond Memories of a life well lived and well thought The stories are compelling, but it is in the exacting language, and the descriptions of that language, where the profundity came through for me Another of my favorite passages flicks at the loneliness of the writer s life Isolation Tank you float in a solution of Epson Salt, in the silence of a weightless world, free of distractions Good, the maker says, for stress reduction, weight management, chronic fatigue, endorphin production Isolation cells, on the other hand, are a form of punishment Tanks, cells if the writer has long erred on the side of being able to think his own thoughts, the clarity of quiet, there are downside risks Alone from Middle English, all wholly one Brief Nudity is really a long poem I recommend it to anyone who loves language, clear writing, and the open west.By Jaimal Yogis, author of Saltwater Buddha
