About the book:
The Fifth Beatle is the untold true story of Brian Epstein, the
visionary manager who discovered and guided the Beatles - from their
gigs in a tiny cellar in Liverpool to unprecedented international
stardom. Yet more than merely the story of "The Man Who Made the
Beatles," The Fifth Beatle is an uplifting, tragic, and ultimately
inspirational human story about the struggle to overcome seemingly
Brian himself died painfully
lonely at the young age of thirty-two, having helped the Beatles prove
through "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" that pop music could be
an inspirational art form. He was homosexual when it was a felony to be
so in the United Kingdom, Jewish at a time of anti-Semitism, and from
Liverpool when it was considered just a dingy port town.
