9781503029880: Dear Prudence: The Story Behind the Song
Présentation de l'éditeur :

“The sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s beautiful, and so are you…”

Those simple lines from the Beatles’ ballad, “Dear Prudence,” are easily recognizable by anyone who lived through the 1960s, as well as by the millions of people who continue to enjoy the Beatles’ music today.

But who was Prudence? Did she ever come out into the sunshine and greet the new day, as John Lennon beseeched her to do? What’s the real story behind the song?

Prudence Farrow Bruns, a daughter of the prominent Farrow family that includes sister and actress Mia Farrow, finally sets the story straight. Her memoir speaks to her three-month self-imposed meditative seclusion in India in 1968, while also carefully examining the universal experience of the 1960s youth movement.

Farrow honestly and unflinchingly explores how music, drugs, the Vietnam War, and eastern mysticism and philosophy changed millions of young people’s worldviews during one of America’s most tumultuous decades. She also touches on her own famous family’s heartaches and triumphs, even as she voices the experiences of an entire generation through a single iconic song.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Prudence Farrow Bruns, PhD, is a member of one of Hollywood’s most celebrated families. The daughter of the late actress Maureen O’Sullivan and film director John Farrow, and the sister of actress Mia Farrow, Prudence is best known as the inspiration behind the Beatles’ beloved ballad, “Dear Prudence.” She is, however, an accomplished filmmaker and scholar in her own right.

Having first practiced meditation and yoga in 1966, she eventually founded Boston’s Integral Yoga Institute in 1967 and became a Transcendental Meditation® teacher in 1968. Farrow Bruns holds a PhD in South Asian Studies from the University of California, Berkeley, specializing in the Sanskrit language and literature. She has presented and published on topics including South Asia, world religions, and Ayurvedic medicine.

She also has her own connections to art and filmmaking, having worked with artists such as Woody Allen, Andy Kaufman, and Paula Vogel. She produced the film Widow’s Peak.

Farrow Bruns and her husband have three children and four grandchildren. They live in Seagrove Beach, Florida.
