The Regulator welcomes Lewis Shiner, author of Heroes and Villains, for a reading and signing of his new book, Outside the Gates of Eden. What happened to the idealism of the 1960s? This question has haunted a generation. Using the music business as a window into half a century, Outside the Gates of Eden follows two men from their first meeting in high school to their final destination in the twenty-first century. From San Francisco to Woodstock, from campus protests to communes, from the Village to Austin’s outlaw country music, Outside the Gates of Eden charts the rise and fall of the counterculture—and what came after.
