About this title

Synopsis:

Now in paperback -- the bestselling book that vividly portrays the beloved Beatle and generational icon

Imagine: John Lennon, authorized by Yoko Ono and drawn extensively from material in the late Beatle's personal archives, is more than a tribute to his timeless legacy. Rare film footage, photographs, and the words of family and friends -- plus a wealth of Lennon's own quintessential wit and candor -- paint a uniquely intimate portrait of the man behind the legend. Here is the poignant story of the tough Liverpool kid who conquered the world with his music, from childhood through dank Hamburg and Liverpool clubs to Beatlemania, from global fame and wealth to a never-ending search for fulfillment as an artist and a man. It charts his loves -- for his first wife, Cynthia; his sons, Julian and Sean; and his great collaborator Yoko Ono -- and his passions, art, music, and above all his work for peace.

From Lennon the performer, in spectacular shots by the world's top rock photographers, to Lennon the lover, father, and human being in intimate family photographs (many never-before published), Imagine captures the man who was the touchstone for his generation. Originally published as the companion to a film biography of Lennon, the book is a handsome tribute to his life and art, and will make an elegant gift for Beatles fans and all admirers of John Lennon's music and imagination.

From Library Journal:

Baird, daughter of John Lennon's mother Julia and her second husband, has written a memoir that comes as a revelation. She describes the warm, close-knit relationships in Lennon's extended family and his frequent visits to his extraordinary mother, who painted, sang, played banjo, and helped John learn the guitar but tragically died young. (Lennon lived at the time with his Aunt Mimi.) Baird thus presents a side of Lennon kept hidden from a public that usually saw only his outrageous creativity. Particularly revealing is her account of John's reaching back to his Liverpool family in his later years. A more penetrating book than Cynthia Lennon's A Twist of Lennon (Avon, 1986). Based on Lennon's personal archives, which Yoko Ono has opened for the first time, Imagine: John Lennon is the most personal, evocative portrait of Lennon yet produced in picture-book format. Family snapshots are combined with the works of major photographers and complemented by commentary from Lennon and the friends and family closest to him. Companion to a film by David Wolper that is being released simultaneously, Imagine would have had greater impact and depth had it not relied so heavily on the film but instead developed a more comprehensive text. Still, it is a powerful book, and the film may create heavy demand. Both books are highly recommended. This is the season for Lennon: Morrow published Albert Goldman's The Lives of John Lennon in September. Ed. Daniel J. Lombardo, The Jones Lib., Inc., Amherst, Mass.
