It's all in Sgt. Pepper's

Beatles-madness-book: I'm trying to find a book about a guy having a mid-life crisis who becomes obsessed with Sgt. Pepper's

My memory of reading this is so ephemeral that I might have dreamed the whole thing. What I recall is the story of a middle-aged guy with problems (family, work, I don't remember) who becomes convinced that Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band contains coded messages to him, or at any rate contains the secret to his happiness, if only he can figure it out.

I can't for the life of me figure out the title, but I am pretty sure I read this when I was in high school (mid-late 1990s). So I don't think you dreamt it, at least. I wish I could help more. I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out what it was called

Do any of these look vaguely familiar?

Response by poster: Is it Shelter, by Marty Asher?

I'm not sure, but judging from the blurbs I've been able to track down I think there's a very good chance that it is.
