Working Class Mystic: A Spiritual Biography of George Harrison by Gary Tillery has been making quite a splash!

 

On September 12, Publisher’s Weekly reviewed the book, saying, “Often called ‘the quiet Beatle’ because of his silence both on and off stage, Harrison spoke forcefully and eloquently in the later years of the band and during his solo career about the power of the divine and our own capacities to embrace it within. Harrison’s songs, Tillery points out, strive to awaken us to the truths that he saw quite clearly: ‘to burn out our past karma, to become aware of our divinity, and to break free of eternal return.’”

 

The book was also mentioned in another Publisher’s Weekly article on the same day, and can be seen via Scribd below.

 

 

And, finally, an excerpt was published on DailyOm on September 28!  In the excerpt, Tillery discusses Harrison’s growing fascination with Krishna.  The full excerpt can be read here.
