'After all these years, we at last know about the real life of a lucky man who made the grade. I found it fascinating to discover the true story of Tara Browne, a legend in a lyric' Hunter Davies, author of The Beatles: The Authorised Biography

Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards 2016 - Winner - Non Fiction Book of the Year

The short and gilded life of Tara Browne, the man who inspired the Beatles greatest song.

Few people rode the popular wave of the Sixties quite like Tara Browne. One of swinging London's most popular faces, he lived fast, died young and was immortalized for ever in the opening lines of 'A Day in the Life'. Who was John Lennon's lucky man who made the grade and then blew his mind out in a car?

Author Paul Howard has pieced together the extraordinary story of a young Irishman who epitomised the spirit of the times: racing driver, Vogue model, friend of the Rolling Stones, style icon, son of a peer, heir to a Guinness fortune and the man who turned Paul McCartney on to LSD.
