Naked at Lunch is one man's cracklingly witty, compellingly odd and oddly life-affirming journey into the subculture of nudism.
Celebrated journalist Mark Haskell Smith meets, and indeed joins, those shucking off social conventions by shucking off their clothes - he hikes bare-back in the alps with a naked rambler's society; he buys baguettes in the buff in a French resort and he meets the marginally dressed mayor of a Spanish clothes-optional municipal.
But this is not just a book of naked adventures and sun-warmed genitals. It is a study of 20th-century Western cultural and social mores; a record of radical history and politics practised by those made radical by their refusal to get dressed; an investigation of why people feel the need to get together and disrobe; and a heart-felt ‘crie de couer’ for reclaiming pride in our bodies and rejecting those who would make us ashamed.
