The Wall Street Journal published a rave review for EVERYTHING NOW by Rosecrans Baldwin. They write: “In his deeply empathetic and insightful book EVERYTHING NOW, Rosecrans Baldwin opts not to grasp for some unifying theory of Los Angeles that will sort it all out for readers. EVERYTHING NOW gives us dark glimpses of an impending apocalypse—the ever-expanding homeless population, the recurrent eco-cataclysms—then introduces us to a handful of resilient Angelenos doing their best to buck the tide of indifference that seems to have crept into the political and social life of the place like a toxic marine layer…Like the city, the stories in Rosecrans Baldwin’s EVERYTHING NOW have no rigid order. But the book is stronger for these digressions. An elegant and unflinching observer, Mr. Baldwin digs up an invisible city under layers of pop-culture mythologizing and media cliches.” MCD published the book on June 15, 2021.
