She Loves You, the third book in the nine-volume biography John Lennon Series, opens with John Lennon and Brian Epstein’s trip to the Spanish Riviera in May 1963 and takes the reader on a 900+ page journey with Lennon through the Beatles first tour of the U.S.A. in February 1964. The book’s Foreword is written by Larry Kane (the only U.S. journalist to accompany the Beatles on their 1964 and 1965 tours of America) and the prologue is by Bill Harry (schoolmate of Lennon and the creator of Mersey Beat magazine).
Other books in the John Lennon Series include: Shoulda Been There – covering Lennon’s life from October 1940 to December 1961 and Shivering Inside – covering December 1961 to April 1963.
