Duncan Campbell (The Guardian)

Duncan Campbell (The Guardian)

Duncan Campbell is a British journalist and author. He was a senior reporter/correspondent for The Guardian from 1987 until 2010. He was the Los Angeles and crime correspondent for the paper at one point.



Campbell was educated at Glenalmond College, an independent school in Perth and Kinross in Scotland.

Life and career

Prior to joining The Guardian, Campbell worked for the London Daily News and City Limits (both defunct), Time Out and LBC Radio.

Campbell is the author of The Paradise Trail, a novel published in 2008. Set largely in India in 1971, it is partly a murder mystery and partly an affectionate depiction of life on the "hippie trail": the cheap hotels and eating places, the music, the drug-fuelled conversations.[1]

In June of 2009, it was announced by The Guardian that Campbell will take voluntary redundancy[2] and now works as a freelance writer including for The Guardian.[3]


His wife is Academy-Award winning British actress Julie Christie, his life partner since 1979, whom he married in India in November 2007.[4]
