"In A Hard Day's Write, Steve Turner shatters many myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four's legacy by investigating for the first time the ordinary people and events immortalized in the Beatles' music." "Arranged chronologically by album, the book explores how private incidents influenced the groups' writing and how their music evolved. Turner reveals that 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' was really a drawing by Julian Lennon of his childhood friend; 'Bungalow Bill' was an all-American tiger hunter; 'Doctor Robert' was a New York "speed doctor"; and much more. The result is a book that chronicles an untold story of the Beatles themselves."--BOOK JACKET.

Angelheaded hipster : a life of Jack Kerouac by Steve Turner ( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 471 libraries worldwide
In the fifties, the movies had James Dean and Brando, rock 'n' roll had Elvis, and the American novel had Jack Kerouac. Kerouac, father of the Beat Generation and creator of a "spontaneous bop prose" style, which embodied the riffing and improvisation techniques that were used by jazzmen, portrayed characters hungry for experience and eager to discover a new vision of life. He made the life of a writer sound exciting and, along with his Beat contemporaries, helped liberate poetry from the page and made the discussion of religion and spirituality hip. Here, writer Turner examines the life and work of the pivotal figure of the fifties' countercultural revolution, and explores the reasons why Kerouac's unique prose and his search for the truth continues to inspire new readers.--From publisher description.
