Here’s the back cover copy

A memoir of the vibrant mid-Sixties that
illuminates both the real life and powerful
imagination of an articulate Beatlemaniac spending
a lonely year in Paris. In a series of poignant and
humorous fantasies about her romance with Paul
McCartney, a young Beth Kaplan writes her way
into adolescence, the dawning of sexual
awareness and the world of real boys.

 “The child with the Beatles fixation finds her way deep into the reader’s heart.”

–WAYSON CHOY, author of The Jade Peony and other books

“Lovely writing – very revealing and very moving.”
–SUZETTE COUTURE, award-winning screenwriter/producer

“All My Loving is honest, evocative, beautifully
written and very funny.”

Ryerson University’s Publishing Program

“The gorgeous, heartfelt memoir of a lonely,
imaginative girl growing up in 1964 with the Beatles
as the soundtrack of her life.”

–LAUREL CROZA, award-winning writer

“Kaplan’s very rich portrait of a family and a time
draws us inside her years as a misunderstood
