ISBN: 1582430624. OCLC Number: Counterpoint,. Washington, D.C. :. ©2000. "Margaret Rose is a talented but nervous violinist given to bouts of stage fright and unrequited love; Webster Hale is a biologist, who, on principle, refuses to kill animals in order to study them. In Angels Go Naked, a novel-in-stories, Cornelia Nixon follows this vexed love story and the collision course that they call their life together. Against all odds, they meet, fall in love, and marry. Margy begins to think about having a child, and it is here that Cornelia Nixon captures the troubled but deeply symbiotic union of a wife who says she desperately wants children and a husband who refuses to become a father. The course of their unhappiness, but one in which their connection is never in doubt, is the story of this novel of contemporary love and loss."--Jacket.
