Introduced by Paul McCartney

I was bored on the 9th of Octover 1940 when, I believe, the Nasties were still booming us led by Madalf Heatlump (Who only had one). Anyway they didn't get me. I attended to varicous schools in Liddypol. And still didn't pass-much to my Aunties supplies. As a member of the most publified Beatles my and (P, G, and R's) records might seem funnier to some than this book, but as far as I'm conceived this correction of short writty is the most wonderfoul larf I've ever ready.

In His Own Write is John Lennon's literary debut, a book of stories, drawings and poems that was first published in 1964 to great critical acclaim and became a phenomenon, selling over 600,000 copies in the UK alone and revealing a hitherto unseen side to Lennon's artistic output and talent.

Review quote

It owes something to Edward 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 * * Irresistible . . . the drawings are marvellous * * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * * Lennon's marvellously clever In His Own Write was the surprise literary sensation of 1964 . . . you get Lennon's biting humour and brilliant puns: Lewis Carroll as rock star * * TAMPA TRIBUNE * *

About John Lennon

John Lennon is one of the most iconic figures of the twentieth century, a musician, singer and songwriter of extraordinary popularity and influence who was tragically murdered in December 1980. Whilst the Beatles, the band with which he is most associated, only existed for eight years they transformed the face and sound of the Sixties and their body of work is the most listened to and covered in the history of popular music.
