Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Literary Nonfiction. Travel Writing. WEST OF EDEN: A LIFE IN 21ST CENTURY LOS ANGELES is a bitingly funny riff on Hollywood, Malibu, Topanga Canyon, and LA. David St. John calls it "hands-down one of the funniest—and wisest—works about Los Angeles." Rosenthal skewers Scientologists, movie stars, celebrities, and himself. Evelyn McDonnell calls it "dry, absurd, and beautiful." Celeste Fremon: "Dead eye gossipy and wildly funny." Rosenthal's second book of Magic Journalism, like ARE WE NOT THERE YET?, is philosophical and hilarious.
