Click here to read reviewer Barbara Bamberger Scott's take on A Day in the Life.

Life imitating art imitating surreal life, or something like that. This is the true tale of Tommy Weber and Susan "Puss" Coriat, two beautiful people living the privileged life in 1960s-era London. They had wealth and fame and beauty and power and lost all of it to the powerful allure of drugs and dreams unfulfilled.

The main characters were married in 1964, and though they came from wealth and prestige, from the moment they were united virtually everything they did would destroy what they had. Being self-destructive hardly even covers the half of it. Tommy crashed a car with his wife aboard; they both took drugs looking for a happiness that was already there; Susan wandered around India trying to find peace.

These characters are set against a backdrop of The Beatles, Hendrix, and the Stones. Greenfield understands this period and writes about it with candor and authority.

You know the song... Now read the book.
