It's been 40 years since John Lennon was shot down outside his apartment, and although the iconic Beatle left behind an unrivaled body of music and legions of devoted fans, his legacy is entangled with questions and contradictions. Also the biographer of Freddie Mercury and David Bowie, Lesley-Ann Jones pulls back the many hidden layers of Lennon's life, tracing the events and personality traits that led the English rock star to a self-imposed exile in New York City.
"Jones delves into the personal struggles of music legend John Lennon in this masterful work…. Groundbreaking in its revelations, impressive in scope, [it] is a must-read for creatives, artists, musicians, and Beatles fans."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
