Malibu Burning: The Real Story Behind LA’s Most Devastating Wildfire

On November 10, Robert will be at Diesel Books in Brent Wood to promote his new book. Malibu Burning goes deep behind the scenes of the most destructive wildfire in Los Angeles history, the Woolsey Fire of 2018.

Alongside his wife and son, Robert Kerbeck battled the fire that threatened to take their home. He knows first-hand how the Malibu fires affected everyone – from the rich and famous to the firefighters who often risked their lives. Blending investigative journalism and personal memoir, Malibu Burning brings you on the dramatic, life-threatening journey of real people fighting 2,000 degree flames to save entire neighborhoods.
