Beatles Photo of the Week: The One Where Liz & Laura Jane Write A Book Together
LIZ: One fine day not so very long ago, I was flipping through my copy of Linda McCartney's Sixties and came across this perfect photo, which I promptly scanned and titled awwwwwwww.jpg. "Look," I emailed Laura Jane a few nanoseconds later, "it's us working on our book!" Which was partly me being cutesy-clever but mostly me being serious-truthy, because LAURA JANE FAULDS AND ELIZABETH BARKER ARE TOTALLY WRITING A BOOK TOGETHER!!! Stop the presses! Alert your local and interplanetary media! Give us a book deal! Laura and I are writing a book about the Beatles, but it's about us, but it's about the Beatles. It's your favorite book, the best book in the world. Maybe Laura will explain more about it below but maybe she won't, and all I really have left to say for now is that LJ is the best John a Paul could ever ask for and I'm so stoked to spend this Valentine's afternoon telecon-ing with her about Our Beautiful Beatles Book. If I had thought ahead and gotten a box of Beatles-song-themed conversation hearts custom-made for the occasion, I so would've given her a pink one that says "Thank You Girl" and then, just to be cryptic, a green one that says "I Forgot To Remember To Forget." Instead I gave her a gif file with a cartoon of Charles Darwin and a caption that reads "I select you. Naturally!", and that's pretty sweet too. Happy heart day, all.
