Dancing Bare

There are currently no reviews.

Rigby, impossibly innocent, swaps suffocating middle-class New Zealand for love and liberation in nineteen-sixties London. Revelling in the freedom granted by anonymity, he becomes an actor, stripper, rent boy, teacher and resolute seeker of new experiences while living and travelling in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, when travellers were uncommon.

{A year ago I posted several chapters, then stopped because I needed to make a few changes. Apologies to those who began reading, only to have it rudely terminated.

Spelling throughout is English English.}


An autobiography is a severely edited selection of events, because to write everything that happened would be impossible, and lives tend to be messy rather than organised. In Dancing Bare I’ve selected events from my first twenty-five years that illustrate points I wish to make about people, places and society. To make a more coherent and entertaining narrative, I’ve occasionally adjusted the order in which things happened, and some names have been changed. Is it all true? Like all Art, an autobiography is a selective recreation of reality. My life has been as disorderly as most people’s, so slavish adherence to the actual time-line and unrelated events would make a confusing and impossibly long tale. All I’ve done is tidy up the record.😎
