Publisher's Summary

Pattie Boyd was the Queen of the 60s 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 20th 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 60s 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, as well as funny, heartbreaking, and heartwarming.

A charming tale of life in the 60s and 70s

Lovely to hear Pattie tell her own story. She was part of pop history but her tale is from a sideline perspective....involved but not consumed.
