Chance to Hear Philip Norman speak


Attention London-based readers:   The Books Podcast is holding a live event on Tuesday, October 24, 2023, in Soho.   Author Philip Norman will be interviewed and signing copies of his new book about George Harrison.  

Please go to  and scan the QR code at the top of the page for all the information.   And if you go -- please report back about it!  I am super curious!

I know Norman is not a well-liked Beatles writer and an extremely controversial author.  However, I would like to hear what he had to say about his latest book on George.   From the things I have heard so far, it sounds like it is full of the same old gossip we already know (how George lost his virginity in Hamburg, his feelings for Maureen, Eric  and Pattie, etc etc).  There are so few books about George written that I want to read this one.   Although I am the person who read the Albert Goldman book on John and ended up deciding that John Lennon was my favorite Beatle, I don't shy away from controversial Beatles books.   


  1. Yeah he's quick to tear down the Fabs and he doesn't seem to mind profiting from it.

  2. I completely dislike this so called authoršŸ‘ŽHe's just a John's fanboy, not really a Beatles fan. Yet he keeps writing about them, because of the money, shame on him. ☹️

  3. Will listen to the pod when it's published and hear what he has to say for himself this time around.
