Then I will remember Things we said today

Well, this looks pretty special!

This November will see the publication of The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present, a two-volume self-portrait in which McCartney recounts his life and art through the prism of 154 songs from all stages of his career - from his earliest boyhood compositions through the legendary decade of The Beatles, to Wings and his solo albums to the present.

The two volumes are introduced and edited by the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon, who says: "Based on conversations I had with Paul McCartney over a five-year period, these commentaries are as close to an autobiography as we may ever come. His insights into his own artistic process confirm a notion at which we had but guessed - that Paul McCartney is a major literary figure who draws upon, and extends, the long tradition of poetry in English."

The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present will be published by Allen Lane in two hardback volumes on 2 November. Each volume will be 480 pages long with colour photography throughout and will not be sold separately.

November may be a way off but to secure a copy for yourself or as a very special gift, get your preorder in now.
