Book Review: ‘April Unwrapped’

BY JASON D. ANTOS


“April Unwrapped” by April Brucker (CFBP Bestsellers, $19.95, available at Amazon.com). “April Unwrapped” by April Brucker (CFBP Bestsellers, $19.95, available at Amazon.com). Have you ever had that horrible dream? You know the one: You are suddenly totally naked in public! Well, if you have, you are in good company.

That is the start of the blurb on the back cover of April Brucker’s new book, “April Unwrapped.” And if an intro like that doesn’t grab your attention, nothing will!

In this photo essay, Queens resident, comedienne and media personality April Brucker stands before the whole world and confronts her insecurities of being naked in public.

The book is almost like a calendar, featuring a month-by-month naked dream of Ms. Brucker’s.

As Brucker puts it, “Like a delicious slice of cheesecake,” the book features a year of her naked dreams. This book may be a bit naughty, but it definitely is not x-rated.

“April Unwrapped” promotes Brucker’s “art as well as her heart in a body-positive, feminist affirming revelation.”

Brucker has received worldwide “exposure” on television, in the media and on the internet, including “What Would You Do?” (ABC), “CBS Sports Now” (CBS) and “The Today Show” (NBC). Brucker has also appeared on “Entertainment Tonight,” “Inside Edition,” “My Strange Addiction,” “No Reservations,” “The Wendy Williams Show” and numerous cable and syndicated television shows.

Brucker attracted international media coverage with her presidential puppet “Donald J. Tramp” at the 2016 Republican National Convention and the US Presidential Debates. She tours comedy clubs and theaters with her one-woman, political satire ventriloquist show, "The Lady and President Tramp."

She also wrote “I Came, I Saw, I Sang: Memoirs of a Singing Telegram Girl” (Infinity Publishing, 2012), and is a comedy blogger for The Huffington Post.

“April Unwrapped” is a delightful and naughty look into facing your fears of being vulnerable with comedy and courage.
