Muddling Through the Sexual Revolution

Albert Podell ’58

Subtitled A Survivor’s Report from the Frigid Fifties to the #MeToo Movement, this memoir—dedicated, by first name, to dozens of women he’s known over the decades—recalls the social, romantic, and carnal exploits of the travel author and former Playboy editor. It includes chapters on events on the Hill in the ’50s that, Podell says, sparked a revolt that ultimately led to the end of in loco parentis rules about undergrad behavior. Podell’s previous books include The Survival Guide for the Adventurous International Traveler and the New York Times bestseller Around the World in 50 Years, which chronicled his successful effort to visit every country on Earth.
