summary :
Benson accompanied the Fabsters on their first, most famous world tour, and his camera snagged images from the mundane to the casually surreal. Unfortunately, Benson's writing tends toward the former: We learn that the Beatles succeeded because-get ready-''they were very presentable.'' Ignore the stuffy prose, then, and marvel at how the vitality of four young men was caught in black-and-white amber, especially in a near-perfect photo of a hotel-room pillow fight: an image that doubles as essence.
