From his early Liverpool days, through the historic decade of The Beatles, to Wings and his long solo career, The Lyrics pairs the definitive texts of 154 Paul McCartney songs with first-person commentaries on his life and music. Spanning two alphabetically arranged volumes, these commentaries reveal how the songs came to be and the people who inspired them: his devoted parents, Mary and Jim; his songwriting partner, John Lennon; his Golden Earth Girl, Linda Eastman; his wife, Nancy McCartney; and even Queen Elizabeth, among many others. Here are the origins of Let It Be, Lovely Rita, Yesterday, and Mull of Kintyre, as well as McCartney's literary influences, including Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, and Alan Durband, his high-school English teacher.
