Riassunto: Commemorative special edition of the notorious autobiography of Francie Schwartz, first published by Rolling Stone's Straight Arrow Books in 1972. Most controversial for Chapter 8, entitled, "Don't Cry, I'm a ....", which details her spring and summer with Paul McCartney and the Beatles, as Paul's livein girlfriend, backup singer on the White Album, and assistant Apple publicist under and around the late Derek Taylor. Also noted for its lack of explicit sexual detail, this book tells what living the 60's media myth was really like. From L.A.'s rock publicity circuit to New York's East side bar scene and ad agency maelstrom, to London in '68 and back! A survivor's story.
L'autore: Native of Allentown PA, Francie grew up in Brentwood and married her childhood sweetheart, an artist and Santa Monica lifeguard in 1962, and divorced him in 1963. After acquiring her degree in Advertising Design from Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles (with a special scholarship from the Los Angeles Society of Illustrators and the Disney Foundation covering her tuition in her senior year) she moved to New York and started her checkered job history in the Corporate Design Dept. at CBS.
When Doyle Dane Bernbach told her she needed a penis to become an art director, she switched to the copy side. Fed up with typecasting as a writer for women's products, she took freelance work that led her to the Russian Tea Room on a cold March night in 1968. The movie treatment she wrote about the street violinist she met that night got her to London and into McCartney's clutches. The rest is herstory.
