A riotous collection of John Lennon's poems, stories and drawings
John Lennon, MBE, was born in Liverpool in 1940. He was a singer, songwriter, author, and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles. He was shot by an obsessive fan and died in December 1980.
Lunatic humour... it defies description. It owes something to
Lear's nonsense books, but from there on in Lennon is on his own...
Zany, offbeat, and illustrated by his grotesque spidery pen. It
jolts the reader into gusts of laughter * Guardian *
Very funny... beautifully designed * Times Literary Supplement *
Irresistible...the drawings are marvellous * Sunday Telegraph *
Fascinating.... It goes down like pure whimsy and then back-kicks like a sick mule. * Sunday Times *
Very inventive... It's all in Lennon's favour that despite the adulation and soft soap, he has remained as tough, arrogant and uncompromising * Observer *
