About this product
- DescriptionA lifetime of letters, collected for the first time, from the legendary musician and songwriter. John Lenn was one of the greatest songwriters the world has ever kwn, creator of Help!, Come Together, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Strawberry Fields Forever, Imagine, and dozens more. But it was in his correspondences that he let his personality and poetry flow unguarded. Now, gathered for the first time in book form, are his letters to family, friends, strangers, and lovers from every point in his life. Funny, informative, wise, poetic, and sometimes heartbreaking, his letters illuminate a never-before-seen intimate side of the private genius. This groundbreaking collection of almost 300 letters and postcards has been edited and antated by Hunter Davies, whose authorized biography The Beatles (1968) was published to great acclaim. With unparalleled kwledge of Lenn and his contemporaries, Davies reads between the lines of the artist's words, contextualizing them in Lenn's life and using them to reveal the man himself.
