Clyde Haberman wrote the NYC column for The New York Times for 16 years beginning in 1995. Prior to that, he spent nearly 13 years as a Times foreign correspondent based in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. He covered everything from the overthrow of Marcos in the Philippines to the collapse of Communism. His first writing job was with the New York Post, covering stories like the bloody Attica prison uprising in 1971. He’s a city kid, Bronx Science and City College.
These days he writes, it seems, about anything he wants to. Find him on the Times website. It’s usually penetrating and often funny, like the episode that once got him fired from The Gray Lady herself. Sometimes, reading Haberman, you can even hear E.B. White chuckle, or sigh.
