70: Rosecrans Baldwin & “Brighton Rock”

Rosecrans Baldwin, who indirectly provided the beginning for the SMDB podcast, stops by the Damn Library to talk about his exceptional “HBO series of a novel,” The Last Kid Left. Youth is discussed, as well as getting characters right, stopping into a memory-laden Barnes and Noble, and reading The Economist in bed. Also, Rosecrans tells a story about how reading Graham Greene helped him meet his wife, before he and the guys discuss Brighton Rock. Tequila is consumed.
