Author to appear at Barrett Bookstore Saturday to speak, sign books
On Saturday, June 24 at 5:30 pm, Rosecrans Baldwin will be at Barrett Bookstore, 314 Heights Road, Darien, to speak and sign copies of his new book, “The Last Kid Left,” a bold, searching novel about how our relationships operate in a hyper-connected world and an expertly-portrayed account of tragedy turned mercilessly into entertainment.
Hailed as “One of the Best Books of the Year (So Far)” by Apple iBooks, it is the suspenseful unwinding of a crime that's more complex than it initially seems. But mostly it's the story of two teenagers, dismantled by circumstances and rotten luck, who are desperate to believe that love is enough to save them. There is no charge for this event, but please call 203-655-2712 to reserve a seat. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
Baldwin is the author of Paris, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down (GQ’s Best Books of of the Year) and You Lost Me There (New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, NPR’s Best Books of of the Year, TIME and Entertainment Weekly’s Best Books of Summer). His latest novel, The Last Kid Left, is forthcoming from MCD x Farrar, Straus and Giroux in June 2017.
Rosecrans’s nonfiction appears in a variety of magazines, most frequently in GQ. Other titles include The Oxford American, The Paris Review, and Saveur. Several articles have been selected as notable essays in the Best American Essays collections. He's written opinion pieces for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Guardian, as well as Salon, Slate, and Buzzfeed. Previously he reviewed books on-air for NPR’s All Things Considered and created the “Digital Ramble” column for the New York Times T Magazine. In 1999 he co-founded the online 'zine The Morning News with publisher Andrew Womack.
