Paul McCartney Memoir To Arrive In November

Entitled, The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present, Sir Paul McCartney encapsulates his life and extraordinary career with the help of a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet.

The 78-year-old musical icon will punctuate his life story in a 960 page collection, complete with 154 songs from his teenage years and early partnership with fellow Beatle John Lennon to his solo works over the past half century. Irish poet Paul Muldoon has been retained as editor and will also contribute to the projects introduction. 

According to a joint announcement Wednesday from the British publisher Allen Lane and from Liveright in the United States, The Lyrics … will be released November 2nd. The former Beatles’ songs will be arranged alphabetically, and are said to include McCartney’s comments on when and where they were written and what inspired them. The U.S. edition of the book will be broken into two volumes, contained within a single box.

Pre-order the massive memoir via the link provided by McCartney himself.

Up until now, no member of the Beatles has ever written a full-fledged account of his life. Considered the most gifted with words, John Lennon published two works of stories, poems and drawings and was but was murdered in 1980, at age 40. Ringo Starr’s Another Day In the Life is centered around photographs and quotes, because, the drummer has said, a traditional memoir would require multiple volumes. George Harrison, who died of cancer in 2001, issued the scrapbook/retrospective I, Me, Mine in 1980.
