Now I'm starting to read A Twist of Lennon. I want to comapre it to John
I just finished John
last night. It was much better than I'd expected; I'd read all these reviews about how she'd got certain facts wrong about this or that, like Sheridan's record My Bonnie
"didn't sell many copies" when it did in Germany, just not the UK. That sort of nitpicky thing didn't get in the way at all. It was a highly personal account about Cynthia's experiences with John, the other Beatle wives (particularly Yoko), and a little bit about the other Beatles. I found it moving and was glad she came out with what she thought was a more honest account than her older A Twist of Lennon
, which she said she'd tamed down to try to keep the peace. K_Eyes, I'd be interested in your report.
I still can't find Cellarful of Noise
over here (for a reasonable price). I'll keep looking!
Adamzero, how did you like Giuliano's Revolver
? I'm afraid I'm too angry with Giuliano to pick up anything of his, and they don't stock him at the library... Hmm, wonder why?
I did read the sample pages on Amazon and didn't find anything new.
I'm starting to read Monty Python's Autobiography
book. I'm starting by looking up all the Beatles references. So cool that Beatles were fans of Python. Michael Palin apparently kept a diary forever, and has some great reminisces. Cheers!
