Originally published in 1980 and cherished by fans and collectors, I, Me, Mine is the closest we will come to George Harrisons autobiography. It is "a sly paradox of a title," to quote Derek Taylor, The Beatles spokesperson, "chosen by a man concerned for many years and for many reasons to send his ego packing...a book which tells a story of growing up, not necessarily the hard way, but certainly not the easy way." Featuring George Harrison in conversation with Taylor, it touches on everything from early Beatlemania to India and Ravi Shankar to his love of gardening. The lyrics to over 80 of his songs, many in his own hand, are accompanied by his uniquely intimate and humorous commentary. As well, 50 archival photographs of George with the Beatles and solo capture a journey of creative and spiritual transformation. Brimming with the wit, warmth, and grace that characterized his lyrics and his life, I, Me, Mine is a treasured portrait of George Harrison and his music.
