Book Preview: The Longest Cocktail Party

apple00-42714In this reissue of a classic memoir, American teenager Richard DiLello relates how he wandered into the Beatles’ Apple building in 1968 and was immediately appointed “house hippie.” He began making tea, rolling joints and listening to dozens of demo tapes. By the time Apple crumbled a few years later he was director of public relations. Full of period detail and a colorful cast of characters, The Longest Cocktail Party is fast-paced and funny but also manages to be immensely poignant about the demise of the Fab Four and the death of the ‘60s dream.
