9780815411574: Lennon in America: 1971-1980, Based in Part on the Lost Lennon Diaries

John Lennon was a legend in his own time. Deprived of life at a young age, Lennon has become a symbol of the '60s and '70s peace movement. But what do we really know about him as a person?

About the Author:

Geoffrey Giuliano is the author of numerous bestselling books on the Beatles and popular culture, including The Lost Beatles Interviews, The Lost Lennon Interviews; Blackbird: The Life of Paul McCartney and Dark Horse: The Life and Art of George Harrison.

Review:

One of the best, most detailed books available on this subject. This book looks at the artist's life during the 1970s, examining his oaranoia and exposing myths about the nature of his character. Giuliano, renowed for his biogrpahical work on the Beatles, is clearly sympathetic toward the 'smart Beatle' and, to paraphrase a song by the subject, simply eants to 'give us some truth.' Beatles fanatics will be fascinated by the minutiae within, including the details of the dissolution of Apple (Library Journal)

Lennon in America paints a chilling picture. (New York Post)

An extraordinary picture of genius. (London Times)

Giuliano (Glass Onion, Two of Us, etc.) spent 16 years interviewing Beatles insiders, listening to rare audiotapes, amassing Lennon's personal correspondence and examining his much-talked-about unpublished diaries, of which Giuliano obtained a copy in 1983. (Publishers Weekly)

In real life, Lennon was nothing like his public image...if the truth counts, you will find it here. (Bookviews.Com)

The book paints a fascinating and chilling picture of Lennon's last reclusive period and challenges the official version of events. (South China Morning Post)

Exhaustive detail...fills in all the lurid detail of his perplexed state. (The Instrumentalist)

Takes a close look at the life and career of John Lennon, especially during the final years of his life. (The Citizens Voice)

The tale he tells is a unique insight into the tortured life of a flawed genius. This one will be REALLY BIG! (Jack Martin Beverly Hills)

Descrizione libro Cooper Square Publishers Inc.,U.S., United States, 2001. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. John Lennon is one of the most well known founders of rock n roll. The glamour surrounding the life and death of this superstar has been portrayed in myriad books. But never from his own point of view. Lennon in America goes beyond the guesses, allegations, and suppositions to get to the explosive truth of the matter. Geoffrey Giuliano looks at the man who was perpetually at odds with himself and unravels the mystery of Lennon s private life through interviews with family members and friends, letters, and never before published diaries and tapes from Lennon himself. What the book reveals in chapter after chapter, is a man desperate for help but surrounded by people Lennon perceived to be bent on his continued fall into depression, bulimia, and cultism. The reader finds that Lennon is full of contradiction devoted husband and adulterer; he is portrayed as a doting dad, but was an absentee father; a macrobiotic health enthusiast who wrestled with alcoholism, heroin addiction, and bulimia; he was a spokesman for world peace, but was unable to control his volcanic temper; a vocal feminist and recalcitrant chauvinist; an innovative and influential rock n roller who renounced music for years. As this book makes abundantly clear, Lennon himself was painfully conscious of his weaknesses, excesses, and failings, of the disparity between the public image and his everyday person. He spent a lifetime struggling to understand himself and to reconcile the conflicts within him, a struggle that ended in New York in 1980 when he was assassinated. Lennon in America offers a revolutionary and all-too-human view of the twentieth century s most legendary rock n roller by the writer most qualified to tell the tale.
