Pattie Boyd was the Queen of the Sixties and beyond!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.

Pattie Boyd's memoir... is an altogether more modest and likeable undertaking than Clapton's sustained apologia... Boyd manages to be frank about the failings of both her famous husbands without ever appearing vengeful or exploitative, making it clear that she remains enormously fond of both, and writes affectingly about her own feelings of inadequacy, and her struggles to build an independent life as a photographer. Witty, unassuming, totally lacking in self-pity - she comes across as a thoroughly good egg. But you'll never be able to listen to Layla in the same way again. (Mick Brown, Sunday Telegraph Seven Magazine )
