The Monkees Tale, written by Eric Lefcowitz, was first published in 1985 (with a second printing in April 1986). The first true book on the group, it has since been updated and revised several times, most recently in 2013. I can still remember purchasing this book as a new fan at my local mall, subsequently combing through it during the course of the '80s resurgence of The Monkees. If you are attending the 2014 Monkees convention, be sure to say hello to Eric (who is scheduled to appear) and tell him you read about the first edition of the book on the Live Almanac blog!
