Naked Olympics by Tony PerrottetI met Tony at the NY Times Travel Show, and man is he fun. That venue was way too small for him and I wished he’d had a whole seminar instead of just a signing. Who am I talking about?

Tony Perrottet is the author of The Naked Olympics and Pagan Holiday. Born an Aussie, it seems he’s been traveling ever since. While he once covered the Shining Path war in Peru, drug running in Colombia and several military rebellions in Argentina, Manhattan in NYC has been his home base for more than ten years.

  1. Will you be attending? If so, eager to hear your comments. Sounds like a fascinating guy. Put in a request for his, The Naked Olympics at the library.

  2. Hi Mary! I’m bummed to say that I won’t be attending. The Thursday night martini fest should be good fun, but I’ll be in Vegas as of lunch time that day.

    Wed I’ll be in Palo Alto and just can’t take more time off work right now to go up in the middle of the day. Gotta bust my arse at TT because I’m making the big move in three weeks and we still have lots of work to get done on our spring list.

    Maybe someone else can comment, though.
