Houghton Mifflin Harcourt has snapped up a new book from music journalist and author Fred Goodman. Tentatively titled The Price of an Education, it will be a look at the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and other iconic music acts from the perspective of their controversial manager, Allen Klein (Goodman will have exclusive access to Klein’s family, associates, and archives). Editor Eamon Dolan said in a statement, “Klein is an extremely sharp, fresh lens for viewing this era and these musicians. He was far more than an ingenious numbers guy; he had a huge ego and a cutting wit that made high drama out of all his dealings with Mick, Keith, John, Paul, and many more.”
