As Vibrantly Written as the music it describes, The Record Men tells the story of how the Russian Jewish immigrant Leonard Chess--along with the other tough-as-nails record men of the 1950s--united with poor black blues singers to transform the music of Chicago's South Side into a multi-billion-dollar business. Full of absorbing lore, animated by stories of legendary performers like Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, and Chuck Berry and imbued with a deep love for popular music, Cohen's tale is a smash hit.

Rich Cohen has written for The New Yorker and the New York Times Magazine, among many other publications. He is a contributing editor at Rolling Stone, and recently cowrote a filmscript. He lives in New York City.
