Library Journal has recommended Working Class Mystic: A Spiritual Biography of George Harrison by Gary Tillery.

The review, which can be read in full here, says, “Tillery examines Harrison’s lyrics, life, and writings and convincingly explains their place—contradictions and all—within Hinduism and within Harrison’s personal spiritual quest. The writing is clear and concise but occasionally veers into near proselytizing as Tillery extends his discussion beyond that for which he finds direct evidence in Harrison’s work. VERDICT: This is a clear, generally well-documented, and fairly short read that will find favor among Harrison and Beatles fans. Recommended.


Working Class Mystic is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and IndieBound.
