INTO THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS The Beatles and the Race to the Moon in the Psychedelic '60s

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Graham Halstead, Ronald P. Grelsamer

Historical Fiction • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

In this audiobook, a novel that weaves the compelling 1960s stories of the race to space and the emergence of the Beatles, the real star is narrator Graham Halstead. He adds drama to the space flights--successes and failures--and his exceptional delivery of the Liverpool accents of the Fab Four and their real-life aide-de-camp, Mal Evans, enliven the listening experience. Mal's stories of "the boys'" lives--featuring drugs, sex, and the making of rock-and-roll masterpieces--encourage listeners to re-hear the music as the songs' backstories are revealed. As the intermingling narratives move the story along, Halstead takes a modest work of historical fiction and makes it better through adept mimicry, fine pacing, and personal style. A.D.M.
