9780802123510: Naked at Lunch: A Reluctant Nudist's Adventures in the Clothing-Optional World
Review:

Praise for "Naked At Lunch" "Hilarious, absorbing and--to adapt Blake's comment on Milton--a sustained celebration of the invention of clothing."--Geoff Dyer "A strangely compelling, riotously funny traipse through the world of nudism. Mark Haskell Smith is a worthy heir to the George Plimpton school of journalism. He's not there to mock; he's there to experience humanity in all its full-monty complexity."--J. Maarten Troost, author of "Headhunters on My Doorstep" and "The Sex Lives of Cannibals" ""Naked at Lunch" is a total joy. Mark Haskell Smith is a fine reporter, a trenchant cultural observer and a spectacular writer. He's the best kind of participatory journalist; one who stands proudly with his subjects even as he stands apart from them. The naked cruise chapter is a tour de force and a worthy addition to the canon of great cruise writing. Even if you've never been nude in your life and have no plans to be in the future, this book will thrill you with its hilarious and outrageous stories and move you with its essential humanity."--Meghan Daum, author of "The Unspeakable: And Other Subjects of Discussion" "Mark Haskell Smith turns out to be an ideally curious point man into the bizarre and complicated world of modern-day nudism. If there's a funnier, more interesting book about being naked, I'd very much like to read it."--Tom Bissell, co-author of "The Disaster Artist" ""Naked at Lunch" is insightful, brave, and inspiring. With extraordinary honesty and humor, Haskell Smith faces down social and personal inhibitions to experience both a fascinating subculture and a moving personal transformation."--Jillian Lauren, author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Some Girls: My Life in a Harem" "Throwing both caution and clothing to the wind, novelist and journalist Haskell Smith strikes a winning combination of personal and journalistic narrative . . . . Informative and entertaining . . . . A witty and insightful read."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review) "An amusing and earnest attempt to understand the appeal of nudism. . . . With solid reporting and scholarship, Smith delves into the genesis of the global nudism movement, constantly enlivening material that could have gotten stale. . . . Smith makes you laugh and think. A thoughtful and entertaining analysis of why so many still want to ditch their clothes and let it all hang out."--"Kirkus Reviews"

Descripción Grove Press / Atlantic Monthly Press, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 208 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. People have been getting naked in public for reasons other than sex for centuries. But as novelist and narrative journalist Mark Haskell Smith shows in Naked at Lunch, being a nudist is more complicated than simply dropping trou. Nonsexual social nudism, as it s called, rose to prominence in the late nineteenth century. Intellectuals, outcasts, and health nuts from Victorian England and colonial India to Belle Epoque France and Gilded Age Manhattan disrobed and wrote manifestos about the joys of going clothing-free. From stories of ancient Greek athletes slathered in olive oil to the millions of Germans who fled the cities for a naked frolic during the Weimar Republic to American soldiers given naturist magazines by the Pentagon in the interest of preventing sexually transmitted diseases, Haskell Smith uncovers nudism s amusing and provocative past. Naked at Lunch is equal parts cultural history and gonzo participatory journalism. Coated in multiple layers of high SPF sunblock, Haskell Smith dives into the nudist world today. He publicly disrobes for the first time in Palm Springs, observes the culture of family nudism in a clothing-free Spanish town, and travels to the largest nudist resort in the world, a hedonist s paradise in the south of France. He reports on San Francisco s controversial ban on public nudity, participates in a week of naked hiking in the Austrian Alps, and caps off his adventures with a week on the Big Nude Boat, a Caribbean cruise full of nudists.
