Wonderful Tonight

Wonderful Tonight: George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and Me by Pattie Boyd & Penny Junor
Pattie Boyd was a successful London model when she met George Harrison on the set of A Hard Day's Night, but most people today remember her for being George's wife, and later, Eric Clapton's. Her memories as a fashion model in the 1960s and with the Beatles provide a unique perspective and the core of this book. Her life with Eric Clapton and his struggle with alcoholism is an exciting but downward spiral which ends with her leaving and his eventual recovery. She lived with two of the most famous musicians of her time and her brush with romance and fame may be the big draw of the book. However, ultimately it is her own life that makes this book a success. She is not famous, but she has survived and developed a life of her own.
