Used. Good. Cover is a bit beat-up, with scuffs, creases, small tears, and other signs of a well-read book. Spine has lots of creases. Previous owner's name on inside front cover in blue ink.
Paperback. Ace (1980).
The Life and Times of the Beatles: The Spurious Chronicle of their Rise to Stardom, Their Triumphs & Disasters, plus the Amazing Story of their Ultimate Reunion.
"The finest novel ever written about rock and roll, it is certainly the funniest. Shipper's humor is incessant, sharp and usually nasty: he takes the reader through every stage of the Beatles' career, twisting each period until it has become a revelatory parody of itself. The book leaps straight out of the lunatic fringe of current Beatle-obsession. Along with many gems, and a number of hilarious running jokes, there is real empathy for the Beatles and anger at what we, as fans, may be doing to the Beatles by refusing to let them drop their old identities." -Greil Marcus, Village Voice.
