Nazis and Nudists by David Haldane

Nazis and Nudists by David Haldane

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.
