Currently Re-Reading: Liverpool Fantasy

In 1962 John Lennon walked out of the Parlophone studios, taking George and Ringo with him. Good-bye Beatles. Now it's 1987, and Lennon is an aged rocker, living in Liverpool. His life is pretty much shite, he's on the dole, and his son Julian has joined the fascist National Front. Paul McCarthy is now Paul Montana, a world-famous Vegas entertainer. Father George, a Jesuit priest, is recovering from a nervous breakdown, and Ringo lives on the earnings of his hairdressing wife. Brilliantly and darkly comic, this book is a must-read for Beatles and music fans. Written by Larry Kirwan.
