A riotous collection of John Lennon's poems, stories and drawings.WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SIR PAUL McCARTNEYFirst published in 1964 and 1965, In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works are a brilliantly inventive and offbeat collection of John Lennon's stories, drawings and poems. Paul McCartney's Introduction to In His Own Write: `At Woolton village fete I met him. I was a fat schoolboy and as he leaned an arm on my shoulder, I realised that he was drunk. We were twelve then, but, in spite of his sideboards, we went on to become teenage pals.

About the Author:

JOHN LENNON was known for his sense of humour. During live performances of 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' he often changed the words to "I want to hold your gland" because of the difficulty hearing the vocals above the noise of screaming audiences.

Review:

"Lunatic humour... it defies description. It owes something to 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

"Very funny... beautifully designed."
--Times Literary Supplement

"Irresistible... the drawings are marvellous."
--Sunday Telegraph

"Fascinating... It goes down like pure whimsy and then back-kicks like a sick mule."
--Sunday Times
