The arrival of the Beatles was one of those unforgettable cultural touchstones. Through the voices of those who witnessed it or were swept up in it indirectly, The Beatles Are Here! explores the emotional impactâsome might call it hysteriaâof the Fab Fourâs February 1964 dramatic landing on our shores. Contributors, including Lisa See, Gay Talese, RenÃ©e Fleming, Roy Blount, Jr., and many others, describe in essays and interviews how they were inspired by the Beatles.
This intimate and entertaining collection arose from writer Penelope Rowlandsâs own Beatlemaniac phase: she was one of the screaming girls captured in an iconic photograph that has since been published around the worldâand is displayed on the cover of this book. The stories of these girls, who found each other again almost 50 years later, are part of this volume as well. The Beatles Are Here! gets to the heart of why, half a century later, the Beatles still matter to us so deeply.
