Chris Erskine

Chris Erskine

Chris Erskine has been a columnist and editor for the Los Angeles Times pretty much since the paper's inception in 1881. That's somewhat of an exaggeration, but only a slight one. He writes about suburban life, travel, entertainment and sports for the paper, and also serves as an editor in its award-winning Features section. Thoreau said: "Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.” Erskine says: "Just give me a funny line. And another beer." He is the author of three books, including "Daditude," a collection of his favorite columns that will be released in mid-April 2018. He grew up in Barrington, Ill., graduated from Drake University, and has also worked at papers in Miami and New Orleans. He has never won any sort of award, and prefers to keep it that way.
