David writes. BIG TRUTH: NEW AND COLLECTED STORIES includes twenty-five short stories set in California, Oregon, New York, Israel and India. His stories have appeared in Reed Magazine, PacificReview, Summerset Review and Oyez Review.

His novels include THE ODD PLIGHT OF ADONIS LICHT, presenting the collision of perception and reality in a dark, witty fable combining a reversal of Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis and overtones of Jerzy Kosinski’s Being There… FLIGHT OF THE SPUMONIS, in which a 13-year-old trapeze artist runs away from the circus and journeys across 1980 America with a 15-year-old New York street kid… THE BOY WALKER, narrated by the aged English bulldog of a San Francisco father and adult son living in the same San Francisco home but emotionally estranged… SAN CAFÉ, a hilarious conflict between hyper-capitalism and leftwing populism in a coffee-dominated Central American country… and SLICK! a geopolitical satire set in the Middle East-honored by Kirkus Reviews as one of the 25 Best Indie Books of 2012.

David’s non-fiction includes GOD’S OTHERS: NON-ISRAELITES’ ENCOUNTERS WITH GOD. A retired advertising creative, he also wrote the book-literally-on the business side of freelancing: SOLO SUCCESS: 100 TIPS FOR BECOMING A $100,000-A-YEAR-FREELANCER. He posts a weekly blog covering a variety of topics on this site.

David and his wife, the actor Carolyn Power, live in San Francisco.
