Nudists are rarely asked what inspired them to be nudists in the first place. Was it something they caught on a cruise ship, or can nudism be explained away, perhaps, as a family trait like baldness or a fear of heights? In I'll Catch the Sun, author Richard Langdon Cook ponders this and other questions in a unique memoir, penned by a man who simply prefers being 'outside' his clothes rather than 'in' them.
While making a compelling case for nudism, this memoir also provides a look at the author's global experiences in Cyprus, Thailand, the Seychelles, South Africa, France, Hawaii, and the Caribbean. An engaging storyteller, Cook shares his thoughts on the English, the Japanese, and offers excellent advice on what not to do in a public bathhouse in Tokyo!
Woven between amusing anecdotes generated by the lifestyle are musings on the language and morality of nudism, personal relationships, the music revolution, and culinary delights prepared in the nude or otherwise. Supplemented with photographs, I'll Catch the Sun is the story of a well-traveled man who has lived a most interesting life in his pursuit of the sun.
