Beth Kaplan


A memoir of the vibrant mid-Sixties that illuminates both the real life and powerful imagination of an articulate Beatlemaniac spending a lonely year in Paris. In a series of poignant and humorous fantasies about her romance with Paul McCartney, a young Beth Kaplan writes her way into adolescence, the dawning of sexual awareness and the world of real boys.
