163: Rosecrans Baldwin (EVERYTHING NOW: LESSONS FROM THE CITY STATE OF LOS ANGELES) & Orhan Pamuk’s ISTANBUL

Rosecrans Baldwin drops into the Damn Library’s online zoom space to chat all about Los Angeles, the subject of his new book, Everything Now: Lessons from the City-State of Los Angeles. We get into many of the things that make up Los Angeles, how it’s different from Paris, and how the book’s structure was inspired by Wittgenstein. He also brings along Orhan Pamuk’s Istanbul: Memories and the City, and we all talk about melancholy before we talk about hot tubs and granola bars. Get right in, the water’s fine.
