“One of the most fascinating portraits to date of one of the most important cultural icons of our age.” —Choice
In June 1989, Paul Du Noyer was contacted by Paul McCartney’s office in London. They asked him to interview the star; McCartney and Du Noyer had met once before and enjoyed a good rapport. In the years that followed, Du Noyer continued to meet, interview, and work for Paul McCartney on a regular basis, producing magazine articles, tour programs, album liner notes, press materials, and editorial content for McCartney’s website. Du Noyer has spent more hours in formal, recorded conversation with McCartney than any other writer.
Conversations with McCartney is the culmination of Du Noyer’s long association with McCartney and his music. Drawing from their interview sessions across thirty-five years and coupling McCartney’s own candid thoughts with Du Noyer’s observations and analysis, Conversations with McCartney is beautifully written—a sensitive, shrewd portrait of one of the most accomplished musical artists of our time.
“Readers get to hear the seemingly ageless former Beatle discuss a variety of topics: songwriting, religion and spirituality, his enduring relationship with Linda Eastman, his reflections on the breakup of the Beatles and life after the group.” —Publishers Weekly
“A welcome contribution to a growing body of serious but not solemn work about The Fabs.” —Kirkus Reviews
