Naked Ambition by Robert Gott – Our Review


Our Review…

Oh, my goodness. If you are looking for a witty, laugh out loud funny and absolutely unbelievable read, then look no further. Satire, sarcasm, and humour at its best, this is a quick read that you won’t be able to put down.

It is brash, ballsy and cheeky while being wildly entertaining. Perfect if you are looking for a fresh read to broaden your reading taste.

Naked Ambition is a story about exactly that! Gregory Buchanan is the next big thing in politics and has had his portrait painted by a highly sought after artist, Sophie White.

After the portrait has been finished, Sophie intends to enter wider competition by entering the artwork into the prestigious Archibald Prize.

Until now, Gregory has mounted the just bigger than life-size painting on the dining room wall at home. It is quite the eye catcher, as Gregory has posed nude, and anyone who enters the home can’t help but be drawn to the artwork.

Centred around a handful of characters, this is a humorous and clever read. From Gregory himself who is quite impressed with the painting, to the artist, to Gregory’s recently pregnant and less convinced wife, to his conservative fundamentalist mother-in-law, the free willed sister and Gregory’s colleague, the State Premier, Louisa.

Set in the home of the dramatic artwork, each character enters, and the drama unfolds as everyone voices their opinions.

Quirky, cleverly written and guaranteed to entertain. You’ll find yourself simultaneously shaking your head and laughing at this brilliant creation.
