Django Haskins is currently working on two full-length non-fiction books: Painting the Town, a touring memoir that explores the history of several American cities at pivotal moments; and The First Class Passenger, a biography of his great-grandfather, who survived the Titanic, played international tennis tournaments, befriended Teddy Roosevelt, and dedicated himself to the Preparedness movement in the lead-up to the First World War.

Excerpts from both projects have been published on the NYC culture blog, Frontier Psychiatrist and elsewhere.
