She Loves You, in the tradition of the fairy tale, is a novel poured into a thimble which contains, among other phenomena: a birth, a death, love both perfect and flawed, a miraculous visitation, a noodle kugel, a dachshund, a stern patriarch, a hope-crazed teenaged girl, and, John, Paul, George and Ringo. Like fathers and daughters everywhere, the teenage narrator and her father find their once blissful union torn asunder by forces they cannot fully understand. In a moment of ecstatic optimism, the girl conceives of a plot whereby she will win back her father's favor by conquering his disdain for the Beatles. Then one night around supper time her hopes are matched by her wildest imaginings when the Fab Four's limo breaks down in front of the family's suburban ranch home. The resulting encounter is as hilarious as it is touching and as true as it is unlikely--changing nothing...and everything. Fully illustrated by Lance Richbourg, She Loves You is suitable for anyone who's had a father, wished for redemption, taken an interest in the Beatles, or likes pen and ink drawings. Although the book was written and drawn for consideration by adult minds, it turns out that teenagers and children feel it was made for them, too.
Klappentext: Praise for SHE LOVES YOU "Billy Graham said of the Beatles, 'They're just a passing phase. All are symptoms of our times and the confusion around us.' "She Loves You," written with great emotional clarity, proves him wrong. This wonderful, funny, melancholy book, about fathers and daughters and the sudden unpredictable intervention of the world into family life, offers such intense nostalgia that it made me laugh and cry all at once. I put on the Beatles' 'Norwegian Wood'-I still own a turntable-and listened to it, and read "She Loves You" five times in a row with bittersweet pleasure."
-Howard Norman, author of "The Bird Artist" "I was charmed and touched by Elaine Segal's tale. It throws a wistful bridge across an old generation gap, but it's good enough for new generation gaps, too."
-Andrei Codrescu, NPR Commentator and author
of "The Blood Countess" "This book is unique. It's an evocation of a moment of generational identity--the memory of where we were, and who we were, when we became conscious of the Beatles. Segal makes the universal personal--her story becomes our story. It's a document of history for the young, a revisitation for the middle-aged, and a work of art for everyone."
-Daniel Pinkwater, NPR Commentator and author
of "Five Novels" "Elaine Segal's bright, wondrous tale took me back to the day in 1965 when my father broke my nine-year-old heart for the first time. 'Isn't "Yesterday" a pretty song?' I asked him hopefully. 'Who do those Beatles think they're kidding?' my Bronx-born dad replied. 'No two guys could write all those songs. Everybody knows it's the same guys who write for Sinatra.' "She Loves You" beautifully evokes the necessary but sometimes painful struggle between fathers and daughters-indeed, all parents and their children."
-Patricia Romanowski, coeditor of "The New
Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll" "She Loves You" should have been my bible, my handbook, my primer back in those teenage years while I waited for the Beatles to find my house. "She Loves You" is a McGuffy's Reader for anyone who remembers what it was like to discover that Paul and John knew EVERYTHING, while Mom and Dad knew, well, NOTHING."
-Cathie Pelletier, author of "A Marriage Made
in Woodstock" "A visual-verbal charmer that captures the essence of adolescence and the innocence of the Beatles."
-Ilene Beckerman, author of "Love, Loss And
What I Wore" "She Loves You" offers more pleasure per page than any book I've picked up in years. Segal and Richbourg have collaborated magically in making this fairy tale for grown-ups, this myth of late twentieth-century Anglo-American culture, this poem, this vision! You'll need at least three copies-one for yourself, one for your kids, and one to lend to your literate friends."
-David Huddle, author of "Only The Little Bone"
