Mimi Smith raised John Lenn and helped to build the man he became. She has been portrayed as a stern disciplinarian in other books, magazines, and films. Not true. She was a fun character. And she was opinionated.
Kathy Burns is a life-long Beatles fan who had the good fortune of becoming friends with John Lennon's Aunt Mimi. The Guitar's All Right as a Hobby, John is her first book and is based on their 25 year friendship.
