Lisa's book is like being directly injected into the brain of the author while she meditates at length on Yoko herself and Yoko's place in the world and as an artist and as a woman in the greater scheme of things filtered through the mind of a woman who's cultural references are probably much greater than yours and who's ability to view things and people without judgement, with genuine interest, passion and an utterly charming innate ability to fascinate makes her thee PERFECT person to write a book about Yoko Ono.
Even if you hate Yoko you should still buy this book. It might even make YOU reconsider...
Lisa Carver does an admirable job of presenting her subject, but sometimes she goes off track. In fact, Hitler gets extended attention, but is there any connection? Some of this has a stream of consciousness feel, and the prose doesn't contain a standard structure. This book is less an overview of Yoko Ono and can be better described as Lisa Carver's mediations on Yoko Ono. Admirably, Ms. Carver goes to bat for Yoko, valiantly defending her against the reasons why Yoko is so reviled by so many. And in these efforts, some seriously valid points are made, although they're not altogether convincing. This doesn't go against Lisa Carver's authorial ability, because Yoko Ono's personality and artistic endeavors remain enigmatic and resist explanation. After all, there's no one else even remotely like Yoko, is there?
Toward the very end of the book, we get into the nitty gritty - the appalling stories of Yoko's treatment of John Lennon's first son, Julian and, of course, her intrusions into the Beatles' musical circle. (Didn't even know that John Lennon's blood stained shirt and shattered spectacles were offered up for sale as artistic statements.) Everyone knows how Paul McCartney has long held extremely strong feelings against Yoko. After all, she had the nerve to assert herself during the Beatles' last studio sessions at Abbey Road, and how dare she? Who invited her or asked for her output? Upon closer analysis, throwing Yoko into the mix was probably masterminded by John Lennon himself. What a surefire way to bring the band to its knees! Certainly, John Lennon had his own antagonistic leanings and what a perfect partner Yoko proved in this regard. She was John's happy henchman and played that role to the very hilt.
Update: At the ripe old age of 79, Yoko's still staging protests. On Friday, January 11, 2013, Yoko Ono and son Sean were in Albany, New York protesting hydraulic fracturing. I love that.
