about this item

Phillip Norman, whose 1981 classicShout! is considered the definitive biography of The Beatles, returns withJohn Lennon: The Life. This New York Times bestseller is an intimate look at the troubled genius who—along with Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr—changed the shape and sound of popular music forever. From his early Liverpool days and heartbreaking childhood tragedies through the heady roller-coaster ride that was The Beatles and far beyond—his prolific post-“Fab Four” career, his turbulent marriage to Yoko Ono, his peace crusade, and his shocking death on the New York City streets—John Lennon: The Life is a remarkably fair and honest, utterly enthralling study of an achingly human rock legend.

Profiles the rock icon, covering topics ranging from Lennon's traumatic childhood in the care of his aunt and the Beatles' unprecedented rise to the in-fighting during the Yoko years and his early death in 1980.
