    The story of Stax Records unfolds like a Greek tragedy. A white brother and sister build a record company that becomes a monument to racial harmony in 1960’s segregated south Memphis. Their success is startling, and Stax soon defines an international sound. Then, after losses both business and personal, the siblings part, and the brother allies with a visionary African-American partner. Under integrated leadership, Stax explodes as a national player until, Icarus-like, they fall from great heights to a tragic demise.

    West of Eden is the definitive story of Hollywood told, in their own words, by the people on the inside: Lauren Bacall, Arthur Miller, Dennis Hopper, Frank Gehry, Ring Lardner, Joan Didion, Stephen Sondheim - all interviewed by Jean Stein, who grew up in the '40s in a fairy-tale mansion in the Hollywood Hills. The audiobook takes us from the discovery of oil in the '20s with the story of the tycoon Edward Doheny ( There Will Be Blood) and traces the growth of corruption through the syndicates, the mob, and the movie studios.
