When Private Eye journalist and author of 18 books Craig Brown won the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction for his biography of The Beatles, One Two Three Four, the judges praised it as ‘joyous’ and having ‘reinvented the art of biography’. Capturing the circumstances that brought the band together and catapulted them to world fame alongside the stories of those who came into their orbit, it offers a kaleidoscopic portrait of the band’s world, and the fun and excitement of the era from which they emerged. He joins The Sunday Times literary editor Andrew Holgate in conversation about his acclaimed book.
