PHILISTINES AT THE HEDGEROW Passion and Property in the Hamptons

by | Read by Steven Gaines

Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1998

It may seem unusual to write a book about real estate, but the thirty miles of oceanfront farmland in the Hamptons has been bought and sold, visited, fought over, and coveted by some of the most creative, powerful, eccentric, and wealthy people who ever lived. They range from corporate moguls, to rock stars, artists, pirates and witches. Steven Gaines is a Hamptons "insider" who shares luscious gossip about the lucky few who have dwelled at one time or another on this precious land. His straightforward performance is enhanced by a haunting piece of piano music heard intermittently. Gaines entertains listeners with stories about Steven Spielberg's property, Martha Stewart's vicious feud with her neighbor, Jackson Pollock's untimely death, the witch hunts, early Native American and settler clashes, and many other fascinating stories.
