Books: The girl in the song



The Girl in the Song by Michael Heatley and Frank Hopkinson is a great little volume that explains the true stories behind fifty songs about women. There are songs by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Leonard Cohen to name a few.

I found this in Waterstone's on Oxford street in their staff picks area- credit where credit is due and all that.

That's interesting. I just read a review about a book called 'My boyfriend wrote a book about me'. Could be interesting to read it from the other side of the lens.

Note to self: use 'interesting' much less.

This sounds a fab book (appropriate word for The Beatles!). I have a bok voucher I am saving for something special, perhaps this might be it!
