Skywriting by Word of Mouth : And Other Writings, Including ""The Ballad of John and Yoko""
Publisher: Harper PaperbacksFormat: Paperback
John Lennon wrote “Skywriting by Word of Mouth,” an impressive collection of writings and drawings, during Yoko Ono's pregnancy with Sean, and always planned to have it published. The book's publication was a wish that seemed to end with Lennon's assassination in 1980 and the theft of the manuscript from the Lennons' home in 1982. When it was recovered and first published in 1986, “Skywriting” received immediate critical and popular acclaim. Filled with Lennon's extraordinary creative powers and lavishly illustrated with his own drawings, the collection reveals his fertile creative spirit up close and in full force. Included in “Skywriting” are “Two Virgins,” written when the public learned that John and Yoko were living together as husband and wife, and John's only autobiography, “The Ballad of John and Yoko.” In addition there are notes on his falling in love with Yoko, the breakup of the Beatles, his persecution by U.S. authorities, and his withdrawal from public life. This is a book with John Lennon's spirit on every page—a spirit the world needs to remember.
