About the Author

Chris Westbury is a cognitive neuropsychologist at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. His work focuses on understanding the functional structure and neurological underpinnings of language. This is his first novel.


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
