This is an auction for DANCING NAKED: AN EXHIBITIONIST REVEALED, by Margaret Austin.

"A Sunday School teacher from Palmerston North, Margaret Austin embarks, at 29, on her big OE - and a remarkable voyage of self-discovery. Shedding her clothes along with her prim and proper morality, she throws herself off the deep end into Life with a capital L. Drawn by the charisma and sexual subtlety of Gilana, her black American teacher, she becomes an erotic dancer in liberal 1970s Amsterdam. A confirmed adventurer, she moves on to Paris where she spends two years in the chorus line at the Folies Bergere, wearing feathers, jewels and gloves - and not much else.
Back in New Zealand in the 1990s, Austin faces the challenge of relating her new sense of self to life 'back home'. In doing so she encounters romance, glamour and adventure, and meets the man of her dreams. Austin is a woman looking for love and for identity. Through her choices, the mistakes she makes and the heartbreak, she shares with the reader intimate glimpses into her dreams, her hangups, her pain and her elation."
