Ever found a frog in your underwear? Or been arrested for cycling round a village green wearing a santa hat, panties—and nothing else? Do you realise that wearing clothes can kill you? And would you know who to avoid at a nudist camp?
No? Thought not.
But then you don’t inhabit the whacky world of Liz Egger, writer and confirmed female nudist.
Liz Egger has been a naturist since the late nineteen-seventies, and over the past 20 years she has become the leading female author on the subject of nudism, nudity and the absurdity of our attitude towards the naked body. As well as co-writing the highly popular “The Complete Guide To Nudism and Naturism” she has contributed nudist and naturist themed articles to a wide range of publications and websites, and her regular column, “From A Nude Perspective” was syndicated across the web for many years.
Nice Girls Can Be Nudists Too is an anthology of 26 of those articles and musings, in which she takes a light hearted and irreverent look at such weighty matters as the drawbacks of dining nude, the pitfalls of celebrating Christmas in the buff, the wisdom of tying up Peeping Toms, the theory that you can tell a woman’s personality from the shape of her breasts, and much else besides, including detours into the realms of nudism and sex and the role of nudism in health. Along the way she shares some outrageous personal anecdotes and gives us an an eye-opening and informative glimpse into a unique world about which many of us have wondered but few have had the nerve to enter.
Thought provoking, sometimes outrageous, often very funny and always entertaining, Nice Girls Can Be Nudists Too isn’t the biggest book you’ll read this year, (a tad under 34000 words—about 125 paperback pages,) but it will probably be the most refreshing and unusual.
You don’t need to be a nudist to enjoy this anthology. Liz Egger’s unique female humour and the quirky subject matter makes this a highly original and often very funny book which should leave even the most confirmed nudophobe wearing a smile. Which is just perfect should you be tempted to read it naked. To quote the author, “When all you’re wearing is a smile, you’ve got to smile a lot.”
