LA Review of Books: Salvation Canyon Review tops the page
We are excited to share that Ed Rosenthal’s book, Salvation Canyon: A True Story of Desert Survival in Joshua Tree has been reviewed in the Los Angeles Review of Books!
Jack Skelley writes, “Clarity beams through … Salvation Canyon: A True Story of Desert Survival in Joshua Tree. Retracing his steps, [Rosenthal] identifies each arroyo… The depictions are 4G, hyper-real, exact. They rivet you in Ed’s engrossed mind and dying body. All in simple, direct prose. That would be astonishing enough. But something primordially creative also erupts from his hell. Something that lifts Salvation Canyon above the survivor-memoir genre and touches on the elemental power of consciousness.”
