The inside story of John Lennon by his first wife offers a unique insight into his life.

Synopsis

John by Cynthia Lennon

The definitive biography and most intimate portrait yet of the world's greatest rock star - John Lennon - by his first wife Cynthia. Cynthia met John Lennon at art college. They fell in love, married and had a son, Julian, at the start of the Beatles phenomenon and their relationship spanned ten of the most important Beatles years. She is one of the few and closest witnesses to events that have become music legend. But as well as new insight into the Beatles years, Cynthia has a compelling personal story of marriage, motherhood and a man - John Lennon - who was to become the most idolised and admired of all the Beatles. As with all iconic figures, the mythology is often better known than the real story. Her affection undimmed, Cynthia is candid about the cruel, as well as the loving, side of John. She tells of the end of their marriage and the beginning of his relationship with Yoko Ono in more detail than ever before, and reveals the many difficulties estrangement from John - and then his death - brought for herself and their son Julian. Cynthia is a remarkable survivor and her extraordinary story and unique insight into a man loved by so many around the world is sure to be a huge bestseller.
