EVERYTHING NOW by Rosecrans Baldwin received a glowing blurb from MEAN author Myriam Gurba. She writes: "Los Angeles invites extreme forms of correspondence, love letters and hate mail, and Rosecrans Baldwin’s EVERYTHING NOW is a lush amalgam of both. In beautiful and concise prose, he maps a sun-drenched geography that we love to hate and hate to love. With this book, Baldwin cements his status as one of California’s finest literary cartographers." William Deverell, Director of Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West also praises the novel: "All the research, all the thinking and wandering and interviewing that Baldwin did to get head and heart, arms and eyes around greater Los Angeles sits barely beyond the sightlines of the beautiful storytelling, the unpacking of myth and memory, the narrative wrestling match with a place that has crushed so many other would-be interpreters. Rosecrans Baldwin tackles a city-state’s sprawling past and present across great chunks of chronology and culture, and does it with grace and imagination. This book is a revelation.” MCD will publish the book on June 15, 2021.
