Description
Benjamin Stein discusses his novel, “Her Only Sin.” He begins by introducing his main character, a woman who suffered abuse as a child and can’t tell the difference between real life and movies. This woman grows up to run the largest movie studio in Hollywood. He discusses how he decided to make the narrator a friend of the main character who runs the studio with her. Stein talks about his time working in the White House and his personal relationship with Richard Nixon. He gives advice for how to get ahead in a career. He ends the interview by describing how he writes about real life situations and talks about the conflict between manipulation and sincerity.
