Four-eyed, radiant smile, basketball-tall, Jack White-circa-'Elephant' unkempt hair and crankiness. Nail-biter, eye-roller, candy-bar-eater, piano-player. Extensive knowledge of dinosaurs and astronomy, owner of many a cigarette-burnt t-shirt promoting late-‘80s college-rock bands. Throws a mean fastball, speed reads, Scorpio. Drinks full-fat milk straight from the carton; eats cereal straight from the box, by the fistful. Got a big dog and he loves her to death. Prone to using semi-archaic adjectives like 'cockamamie' and 'yellow-bellied,' preternaturally adept at preparing complicated omelettes and tropical cocktails. Sarcastic yet kind. Poetic sleep-talker and never-snorer. Pyromaniacal but only on the summer holidays, perpetually in possession of many illegal fireworks. Long eyelashes and long hands and a lovely voice for reading out loud, and he reads to you out loud, every single goddamn night."
Let It Be Beautiful is a book project by Elizabeth Barker and Laura Jane Faulds. Over the course of nine volumes, Liz and LJ will rewrite every Beatles song (there are 300!) as a story or an essay. Like Dreamers Do is an excerpt from the first Let It Be Beautiful volume, Meet The Beatles.
