I try to choose staff picks of general interest, and I will freely admit that this book probably isn't - it is for readers who love the Beatles. You don't have to be a fanatic (I'm not), but if you love Let It Be (I do) then this book is not only appealing but probably mandatory. At a literal level, it is a textual and photographic transcript of the studio sessions preparing for their last concert, with the songs that became that album (and much of Abbey Road); but writ large it is really a narrative of the last phase of the band. They are talking, joking, playing, creating, arguing, reminiscing - far more than the story of a break-up, it is an exploration of a phenomenon. And the photos are magnificent.

It's true; Fleabag is so 2019, but for me, it’s great to look back and commemorate the moment, before everything came crashing down, when one woman was making art in the shape of women. The Fleabag Scriptures contains entire scripts of seasons 1&2 and provides fans with an intimate view of how Waller-Bridge's mind works. Perfect for fans of the show, writers, actors, and humans on your list.

Kaikeyi offers a lovely and melodic reimagining of a story from the Ramayana, a Sanskrit epic. While nothing beats being told these tales by my grandparents over a crackling fire, Vaishnavi Patel’s poignant and inspiring storytelling definitely burns just as bright.
