More About the Author

Eric Lefcowitz began writing in the early 1980s, releasing his first book "The Monkees Tale" in 1985. Thanks to exposure on MTV, the book became a bestseller and Lefcowitz has subsequently become known as a historian on the influential 60s band. Since then, Lefcowitz has published in a variety of settings including an anniversary article on the movie "Dr. Strangelove" for the New York Times, several books (most notably, "Tomorrow Never Knows: The Beatles' Last Concert" with famed music photographer Jim Marshall) and the website which was originally created for AOL. Lefcowitz now runs a specialty food business called Retrofuture Products which promotes emerging independent food producers, including his own line of space-related novelties. In his spare time, he writes and plays in the band The Mulligan Band, is raising three children, and still has time to walk his dog Maxi. In 2011, he re-released a comprehensive 45-year spanning biography called "Monkee Business: The Revolutionary Made-For-TV Band."

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Michael Patrick Boyd on August 31, 2011
Format: Paperback
The Monkees Tale by Eric Lefcowitz, copyrighted in 1985, is 103 pages. The one that I am reviewing is the 1986 second printing of the book. The book covers the years from 1965 to 1984. So the is pre MTV reunion. The book is divided into thirteen chapters and the main downside is the book does not list how long each chapter is. Also the biography, if you want to call it that, is only 83 pages long. The last two chapters deal the group filmography and discography. The Monkees Tale goes into great detail of the show history, the music, the movie Head and their only television special called 33¨÷ Revolutions Per Monkee. The downside to the book is when the author talks about each former Monkee after the breakup of the group. Davy Jones section of the book is like reading a cliff note of his life. The most detailed one is Mike Nesmith, Peter Tork and Michael Dolenz fall somewhere in between. What you will not find is the MTV reunion, Pool It, and Just Us, and Mike Nesmith brief return to the group. The Monkees Tale by Eric Lefcowitz left me wanting more and therefore gets a B+. A footnote to this review is the author of this book has come out with and expanded update of the group called Monkee Business: The Revolutionary Made-For-TV.
