Linda McCartney died of breast cancer in April 1998. This biography by a friend of over 30 years offers to bring the whole Linda McCartney into view. In 1969, when Linda Eastman married the world's most eligible bachelor, The Beatles' Paul McCartney people said it wouldn't last. Yet it lasted nearly 30 years. How did they do it? What was the nature of their commitment, and what made it so strong? Was it indeed as "idyllic" as the press has defined it. In their own words, Linda and Paul reveal to Danny Fields how a romance given a poor chance of survival, flourished until Linda's death. Interviews with the couple, with friends, family and stars of the world they lived in, and the perspective of a 30-year intense friendship have gone into the writing of the book, intended to both inform and inspire.

About the Author:

Danny Fields has been a constant presence on the pop-culture scene since 1966, the year he met the future Linda McCartney. Fields has worked in both the music and magazine industry and has long been on the nominating committee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

From AudioFile:

In his gossipy book-length eulogy, rock columnist and longtime friend Fields presents Paul McCartney's late wife as a strong, sensitive woman who took heaps of abuse for daring to marry the world's most eligible bachelor. Over the years she bore Paul's children, pulled him out of a post-Beatles depression, toured with the band Wings, and promoted animal rights and vegetarianism. Allan Smithee sounds younger than the author, but otherwise he does a decent job of bringing Linda to life (she died in 1998). He recreates the interviews and remembered conversations on which the text relies without trying to imitate Paul, who is a secondary figure here. Fields's moods emerge--adoring, petulant, nostalgic--as does his desire for the listener to really know Linda. And at tape's end, you feel you do.
