The ToB, presented by Field Notes, is live!

It's the 2023 Tournament of Books, presented by Field Notes! Yay! It’s time to Rooster!



If there's a TMN house band (besides Trail of Dead), it's Soft, a Brooklyn-based quintet currently blowing up with a finally-released EP. How five guys manage to recreate the Manchester sound--guitars ready for stadiums, hooks big enough for groupies--and still make it sound new is a shock; the relief is letting go of your guilt for never catching a Stone Roses show. Check out their web site to preview a batch of songs.

Rosecrans Baldwin co-founded TMN with publisher Andrew Womack in 1999. His latest book is Everything Now: Lessons From the City-State of Los Angeles. More information can be found at More by Rosecrans Baldwin
