Don Canaan’s latest book is now available. “Spaced Out: Baby’s Final LSD Trip,” the story of a young man haunted by the death of his father during World War 2, who decides that tripping out would erase that memory. But the reverse occurs, and the now paranoid adult sees Nazi uniforms and murders wherever he goes in New York City and later in Israel.
Canaan's news background covers four decades of journalism history -- from editing news film and documentaries for NBC News in New York to immigrating to Israel to pioneer the city of Yamit in the Sinai, and a subsequent return to the U.S. where he earned a master’s degree in journalism. His series, "Jews in Ohio's Prisons" received first place for best weekly journalism in Ohio from the State of Ohio Bar Association.
Canaan’s books are available in e-Book, print edition and audiobook formats from Amazon, Audible, Smashwords.com and Draft2Digital.com in English, Portuguese and Spanish versions.
