Overview

"Haldane's storytelling is rapid, fact-packed, devoid of filler (and) heavy on action." –Long Beach Press Telegram

Like many baby boomers, David Haldane got swept into the turbulence of the late 1960s and early '70s, first as a radical activist and then a writer for an underground newspaper. Eventually, after self-imposed exiles in Europe and Mexico, he married, started a family and graduated to a significant position in mainstream journalism from which he chronicled many of the events that shaped an era. But Haldane always longed for something more, a "green leafy space" in which he could feel at peace. Finally, after a painful divorce, he found it in an unconventional way; with a dark-haired woman met on the Internet and wooed on the exotic islands of the Philippines. Nazis and Nudists is a series of poignant - and sometimes humorous - essays recounting that long journey. It is a story of love lost and love found. More importantly, it is about the lifelong spiritual quest for a place to call home.

About the Author

David Haldane's career in journalism has spanned more than four decades, beginning as an underground reporter for the Berkeley BARB and culminating in twenty-three years as a Los Angeles Times staff writer. Currently he divides his time between homes in Joshua Tree, California, and Northern Mindanao, Philippines, where he writes books, magazine articles and a weekly column called "Expat Eye" for Mindanao Goldstar Daily, the island's largest newspaper. Until recently, he also worked as a reporter and weekend news anchor for KCDZ FM in Joshua Tree, for which he was awarded a 2018 Golden Mike. His work has appeared in many publications worldwide including "Los Angeles Times Magazine", "Orange Coast", "Islands", "Penthouse" and "Salon". It has been anthologized in two previous books. When he's not writing, Haldane can often be found caring for his 8-year-old son which, he says, is a much harder job.
