The World of David Haldane - Fiction, Nonfiction and Commentary

About David Haldane

A master writer, Haldane melds the personal and reportorial to explore the human condition. As a long-time journalist, award-winning radio broadcaster and former Los Angeles Times staff writer, he is a keen observer of the way things are. Much of Haldane's work utilizes his own experiences as mirrors reflecting the larger, insanely complicated and gloriously colorful world in which we live. When he's not dancing with elephants, you can usually find him at home in the California desert or the Philippine jungle helping his Filipino wife raise their two children.
