Fay takes a look at the (short) life of Stuart Sutcliffe, the ‘fifth Beatle’, following the story of his life and death at the age of 21. There’s one fictional character in the story, but that’s spelled out in the title, so no surprise there, and subsequently no further surprises in a story that’s nicely handled, but nothing mroe.
