His latest book is Lennon: The Man, The Myth, The Music.
Some time back I asked Riley what he was reading. His reply:
I'm a non-fiction obsessive. My favorite books from the past season include Adam Gopnik's Angels and Ages, a joyride comparing Lincoln with Darwin.Visit Tim Riley's website.
I also admired Peter Doggett's You Never Give Me Your Money, which soars as the best entry on the Beatles breakup with many new voices and stories I'd never heard before. More proof that Beatle soil is well worth tilling by the right scribes.
I also dive regularly into David Thomson's Biographical Dictionary of Film and "Have You Seen ...?" for explosive opinions on movies near and far, and Greil Marcus's Dylan compendium.
Oh yeah: The China Study turned me vegan, no regrets.
Lennon: The Man, The Myth, The Music is on the Christian Science Monitor's list of the five best books on John Lennon.
