Author(s): Pattie Boyd
Pattie Boyd was the Queen of the Sixties and beyond! She was a drop-dead gorgeous model, photographer, and the inspiration for the timeless songs "Something", "Layla" and "Wonderful Tonight". Her story is one of drama, struggle and, ultimately, affirmation, but her struggles (against addiction, tragedy, infertility) were lived with two of the twentieth century's greatest musical icons: her husbands George Harrison and Eric Clapton. Now, after 40 years, she tells her extraordinary story. From growing up in Kenya in a privileged but broken home, becoming a sixties supermodel, working with David Bailey and Ozzie Clarke, and meeting the Beatles, to marriage to George and then Eric, to the accidents and brushes with tragedy - her own and Eric's - this is a mesmerising human story. Written with the acclaimed biographer and journalist Penny Junor, "Wonderful Today" is rich and raw, it is funny, heartbreaking and heartwarming. First published 2007.
Pattie Boyd, sexy, stylish, and still sparkling lives in Sussex. Penny Junor began her professional life as an investigative and feature journalist, and is the author of bestselling biographies of subjects ranging from Prince Charles and Margaret Thatcher to Richard Burton and her own father, John Junor.
