Paul McCartney, lyricist and musician of the Beatles, chose Paul Muldoon to edit his 154 song lyrics, song-related essays, and autobiographical texts-written between 1956 and 2020. Over several years, the musician and the lyricist, both of Irish Catholic background, engaged in conversations about the creative process and McCartney’s output over the decades. The award-winning lyricist recounts an unusual and exciting collaboration.
