Fab: An Intimate Life of Paul McCartney
Hachette Books, 26 окт. 2010 г. - Всего страниц: 656
Howard Sounes, the bestselling author of Down the Highway: The Life of Bob Dylan and Charles Bukowski: Locked in the Arms of a Crazy Life, turns his considerable reporting and storytelling skills to one of the most famous, talented—and wealthiest—men alive: Paul McCartney.
Fab is the first exhaustive biography of the legendary musician; it tells Sir Paul's whole life story, from childhood to present day, from working-class Liverpool beginnings to the cultural phenomenon that was The Beatles to his many solo incarnations.
Fab is the definitive portrait of McCartney, a man of contradictions and a consummate musician far more ruthless, ambitious, and moody than his relaxed public image implies. Based on original research and more than two hundred new interviews, Fab also reveals for the first time the full story of his two marriages, romances, family feuds, phenomenal wealth, and complex relationships with his fellow ex-Beatles.

Fab was a very enjoyable read. Howard Sounes does a great job of balancing McCartney’s mistakes and his genius, but never deifies the man. Yet at the same time he seems to like McCartney more and more as the book progresses draws the reader into a shared and honest admiration. Читать весь отзыв
