Haslam's stories are of the quintessential California of working people who struggle to make a living. He is their spokesperson-no matter what their color or language-because he, too, has chopped cotton under the searing sun, has toiled on drilling rigs in fog thick as oatmeal, has lived in a house where Spanish and English mingled. His writing marks a boundary between the Golden State's stereotypes and the real people who persevere in seeking the California dream.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Put a cowboy hat on a microphone and you have Gerald Haslam, whose short stories have recorded the landscapes, the working-class customers and, above all, the voices of Bakersfield area for two decades now. Okies, Indians, blacks and Latinos; ranchers, roughnecks and a few who got education but could never get the dust and oil and tule fog out of their blood-Haslam lets them all sound off." -Los Angeles Times Book Review

""Haslam's recent collection of short stories, That Constant Coyote, represents one of the most powerful literary ensembles I've encountered in quite some time." -Geoffrey Dunn, Santa Cruz Magazine
