    Barry Miles, renowned cultural historian and writer, brings us the fascinating inside story of Zapple, the Beatles' experimental and spoken word label. Appointed as manager of Zapple in 1968 by Paul McCartney, Miles set up the label and planned its proposed list of radical releases in co-operation with the Fab Four. Featuring many of the author's previously unpublished photos, The Zapple Diaries is written as an engaging journal and illustrated with rare memorabilia from the author's archive (now housed at the British Library). As Barry Miles takes us through this period of his career, he grants the reader unique insights into the lives and working methods of many of the leading literary and countercultural figures of the era.
