San Francisco Chronicle and Philadelphia Inquirer to Review JOHN LENNON AND THE MERCY STREET CAFE

Two of the nation's top newspapers, the San Francisco Chronicle and the Phildelphia Inquirer, will be reviewing John Lennon and the Mercy Street Cafe in late June. This marks yet another milestone in the publication of a novel that continues to gain the status of cult fiction.

Many European newspapers have also favorably reviewed the novel during the past year, and the book continues to gain traction in Eastern Europe, where the Beatles' music was banned for so many years. Once source told me that "All things 'Beatles' are popular in the former Soviet Union." Many teens even sport Beatles hair styles (from the group's early days). Buying electric guitars and forming Beatles tribute bands is becoming the "thing to do" as a rite of passage for kids discovering rock and roll.

A simple Google search often brings up John Lennon and the Mercy Street Cafe, and since the book merges hundreds of Beatles facts into the plot, Europeans are now buying the book in record numbers.

False Rumors About the Book of the Month Selection

Although there was a lot of buzz flying through cyberspace this week about John Lennon and the Mercy Street Cafe being chosen as a Book of the Month Club selection, the rumor is complelty false. As near as I can tell, a few bloggers were speculating on the possibility, and as is so often the case, speculation turned into alleged fact as it was passed along. The game Kindergarten is alive and well! Perhaps if the book continues to enter new markets, this rumor might one day be converted into fact!
