Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"[Davies] has done a sensitive and scrupulous job collecting and annotating Lennon's letters, and the book is beautifully designed." -- Vanity Fair

"A massive deposit of freshly excavated notes, screeds, asides and howls, each lavishly reproduced and carefully annotated, 'Letters' is the most intimate book ever published about Lennon. In its revelation of the man's psychology, it far surpasses all previous accounts by wives, lovers, half-siblings, ex-aides and even the best biographers." -- James Rosen, The Washington Post

"... Lennon's collected letters -- 285 of them, richly contextualized and handsomely presented... -- make for fascinating reading." -- The New York Observer

"... a must-read for Beatles fans." -- Glamour

An "illuminating volume that shows a different, unguarded side of the man." -- Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Fans will lap it up." -- Bloomberg

"This book makes it clear, more than ever, how lamentable it is that we lost Lennon the man." -- Maclean's

Kurzbeschreibung

A lifetime of letters, collected for the first time, from the legendary musician and songwriter.

John Lennon is one of the world's greatest-ever song writers, creator of 'Help!', 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds', 'Imagine' and dozens more. Now, his letters have been collected and published, illuminating as never before the intimate side of a private genius.

Hunter Davies, author of the only authorised biography of The Beatles, has tracked down almost three hundred of John's letters and postcards - to relations, friends, fans, strangers, lovers and even to the laundry. Some of the letters are tender, informative, funny, angry and abusive, and some are simply heart-breaking. Many are illustrated with John's own drawings, doodles and jokes. Davies tells the story of each letter and together they form a compelling narrative, from Lennon's earliest surviving thank-you note, written when he was ten, to his last scribbled autograph given on 8 December 1980 - the day he was shot, aged forty.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful book. 27. September 2012
Von Stilson Greene - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The first thing you will notice is how beautifully this book is designed. Great thought was put into the paper which has a wonderful thick and rich feel, to the tones of the overall color scheme(white and ivories) to the actual letterpress look of the typography, it's a package that had careful attention paid to it. The actual book is revelatory in that it actually gives the innermost thoughts of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. John was honest and was never afraid to say what he was feeling at the time, those feelings changed and shifted as he moved through the events of his life. The letters are funny, cruel, witty, romantic, bitter, loving, happy, sad, nasty, contrite and brutal. They are also peppered with his simple yet beautiful Thurberesque drawings and doodles. Admittedly I am an unabashed Lennon fan, this collection is a gift, allowing a glimpse into this complicated artist and icon's thoughts, but more importantly his humanity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a little piece (peace) of john 28. September 2012
Von hb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
WOW. Another birthday present from Yoko, via Hunter Davies. John's handwritten letters, reproduced with his little cartoons and all, transcribed with plenty of context. Something old, but which is new for all of John's many fans worldwide. All you need is this book as you remember John on his birthday October 9th. Don't hesitate - this is beautiful (and essential for collectors).

5.0 von 5 Sternen An intimate look into John Lennon's life 5. November 2012
Von Denise R. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
It's the small artifacts of everyday life which reveal so much about us - the notes, letters, photos, lists, all capture our daily moods, thoughts, big events & small moments. Some are intimate; others are mundane, but they all have the capacity to shed light on who we are.

Collected here are John Lennon's letters, postcards and other ephemera; each pictured with a transcription (in case you can't read his handwriting) and well-written text to give context to each item. They show John's humor, kindness, friendship and creativity, as well as his darker sides - frustration, anger, and sadness.

The book is beautifully produced - 392 pages, on heavyweight, high-quality paper, with color (and a few black & white) reproductions of the letters and other items, a full index, a brief foreword by Yoko, and an introduction by the editor, Hunter Davies. The contents are gathered into 23 chapters, each detailing a different period of John's life, or topic. Just a few of these are - for example - Early Years (childhood); Hamburg; Beatlemania; India; Apple Dramas, Problems with Paul; Double Fantasy. Many of the pieces are embellished with John's drawings.

The items in The John Lennon Letters were obviously collected, considered, and written about with great care; Hunter Davies has done a great job in curating this collection. I'm always wary of writing five-star reviews (there's usually some improvement that could have been made), but you know there's really nothing here that I can find fault with.

There's plenty here to see, read, and reflect on, and it all combines to paint a deeply personal portrait of the man, John Lennon. As a longtime Beatles fan, I've gotten great enjoyment out of this book and the glimpses it offers into John and his relationships with others. Anyone interested in John, the Beatles, or their history should find this book engrossing and a pleasure to delve into.
