Nazis & Nudists – David Haldane

“Fact-packed, devoid of filler and heavy on action.” That’s how the Long Beach Press-Telegram described David Haldane’s award-winning memoir, Nazis & Nudist.

A heartfelt, sometimes humorous, and always entertaining romp through the American counterculture of the 60s and 70s, the book tells of journalist Haldane’s long quest for a place to call home which, for him, ended up being on a remote Philippine island in the arms of a dark-haired young woman who, as he says in the dedication, “came from a small island to make my life large.”

The book was a finalist in two categories of the 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the 2017 McGrath House Independent Book Awards, as well as a runner-up in the 2016 Maxy Awards.
