9780070117891 The title does not exaggerate: In the six years that he devoted to their careers, their creative freedom and their personal happiness, Brian Epstein did make the Beatles, and soon after his sudden death in 1967 at age 32, the group split up. Based on interviews with Epstein's family, friends and associates, this biography, by a man who knew him well, sensitively describes and tries to explain the charming, artistic, resourceful manager who realized the potential of his four young fellow-Liverpudlians. Having made the Beatles famous internationally, and amassed a fortune for them and for himself, Epstein nevertheless was restless, depressed, capricious, easily bored and increasingly irrational. From a middle-class, orthodox Jewish family, Epstein suffered the "dreadful inner conflict of reluctant homosexuality" at odds with his deep desire to marry and be a father. Coleman, biographer of Eric Clapton and John Lennon, writes fluently, objectively and with warmth but, in an attempt to provide as detailed a picture as possible, strings along more quotations and opinions than are necessary.
