More About Skywriting by Word of Mouth by John Lennon
 
 
 
Overview
John Lennon wrote Skywriting by Word of Mouth, an impressive collection of writings and drawings, while Yoko was pregnant with Sean, and always planned to have it published. It was a wish that seemed to end with his assassination in 1980 and the subsequent theft of the manuscript from the Lennons& 39; home in 1982. When it was recovered and first published in 1986, Skywriting received immediate critical and popular acclaim. Written in Lennon& 39;s extraordinary voice, and lavishly illustrated with his own drawings, the collection reveals his fertile creative spirit up close and in full force. Included in Skywriting is Two Virgins, written when the public learned that John and Yoko were living together as husband and wife, and John& 39;s only autobiography. In addition there are notes on his falling in love with Yoko, the breakup of the Beatles, his persecution by the U.S. authorities and his withdrawal from public life. This is a book with John Lennon& 39;s spirit on every page -- a spirit the world needs to remember.

"Candid and scathing....It& 39;s no wonder Lennon& 39;s fans grow more in love with him as time goes by... his great influence on popular music makes him impossible to forget; so does this book." --Houston Chronicle

"Marvelous, delightful reading, and for Lennon fans a must." --Publishers Weekly
