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.
