For Labour politician Alan Johnson and music journalist David Hepworth, united in their passion for the Beatles, music isn’t just an accompaniment to life – it’s an integral part of it.
In My Life is the latest in Johnson’s series of bestselling memoirs, which began with the RSL Ondaatje and Orwell Prize-winning This Boy, while Hepworth’s new essay collection Nothing Is Real explores essential questions about our relationship with music. Expect politics, culture, rock ‘n’ roll, passion, opinion and a hearty dash of nostalgia.
