The Author
Paul McCartney acknowledges that it was Miles who introduced him to London's avant-garde scene. It was at Miles' London flat where McCartney first read William Burroughs and the beat poets, and heard experimental music. Miles' record collection of cutting edge jazz proved highly influential to The Beatles' development. When Miles opened lndica Books and Gallery and co-founded International Tiines, McCartney helped him support the ventures - lndica was where John and Yoko would famously meet.

Miles is also the author of Many Years From Now, the best selling authorised biography of Paul McCartney.
