Here, for the first time, is an intimate look inside the Beatles and
their relationships with their muses, the eight women who shared the
Beatles' lives from their teens, through Beatle-mania to the breakup. In
evaluating the lives of these storied women, the book charts unrecorded
collaborations and the startlingly revelatory autobiographical nature
of the band's most famous songs. It also unfolds as an eye-opening
alternative history of the forces that brought the Beatles together and
ultimately tore them apart.
Readers will learn of eight women who
were the key Beatles' lovers: Cynthia Powell, Mo Cox, Iris Caldwell,
Dot Rhone, Jane Asher, Pattie Boyd, Yoko Ono, and Linda Eastman. In new
interviews, numerous key players in the Beatles' story, among them many
previously off the record, will recount the truth of their private
lives, revealing a side of the Beatles never before seen.

No details, yet, but Turner is the author of the very good "A Hard Day's Write: The Stories Behind Every Beatles' Song," so it sounds promising based on the writer and title alone. We'll provide more info as we get it.
