Dancing Bare

Rated 4.00/5 based on 4 reviews
Dancing Bare is an amusing tale about Rigby, an impossibly innocent young man who swaps the suffocating confines of middle class New Zealand for love and liberation in nineteen-sixties London and Europe. Revelling in the freedom conferred by anonymity, he becomes an actor, stripper, rent boy, lover, teacher and dedicated traveller through Europe and North Africa. More

About Rigby Taylor

My first quarter century has been recorded in what I hope is an amusing and edifying autobiography, "Dancing Bare".
After travelling for a few more years around the world with my partner, we settled in New Zealand, and became, as my mother might have said; Jacks of all trades but master of none...farmer, teacher, actor....
Growing tired of the cold, wet and wind of New Zealand, we moved to sub-tropical Australia where we live on several forested acres.

Review by: C S McClellan on April 18, 2015 :
Rigby's a snob, as one reviewer manages to say without using the word. But he's my kind of snob: witty, intelligent, compassionate, observant, insightful, honest. Just the comparatively short span of time his memoire covers gives a good sense of history, and points up the contrast between the beauty of the world he discovered in his travels as a young man, and what it's become since then.

It's a wonderful portrait of someone maturing, sometimes painfully, but even in the process of losing his naivete and innocence, he usually manages to maintain his sense of humor. He deserved to find the true love he was searching for, and he did.

I have to feel sorry for the reviewer who lost 20 IQ points reading the book. She obviously couldn't afford the loss.

Kristie must be brain dead. This book is so funny, witty and well written, I couldnt put it down. Far from feeling sorry for himself, the author pokes fun at himself, at the same time opening a window to the recent past that should make everyone think again about the sort of world we are creating. Well done!

Review by: Kristie on Feb. 14, 2011 :
This book is a nauseating rollercoaster ride. The author makes it very clear what he thinks of the rest of humanity. Nobody is as great as he is, whine, whine! What a load of self indulgent drivel. I believe my I.Q. fell 20 points from reading this...

Review by: Dave McGee on Feb. 12, 2011 :
This is a compelling, absorbing and above all delightful read, covering a young man's travels and adventures far from home. 1960s London has gained notoriety and featured in the bios of numerous celebs, but here the author gives us a delicious, uncensored account, refreshingly honest and vital. It will chime with all who knew that time and enthrall those who didn't. The author's subsequent travels through Europe and North Africa are spellbinding and speak of a world now gone forever. Highly recommended.
