    ‘This is my story both humble and true. Take it to pieces and mend it with glue’ – John Lennon, 1969

    ‘The first time I read John’s writing was at a book shop in London. I’d gone there to see if they’d stocked my book Grapefruit, and I sighed in relief when I found it. Then I noticed John’s book. We were on the same shelf, close to each other: John was under L, I was under O. I flipped through the pages and read ‘I Sat Belonely’. Next I noticed a drawing of an ugly woman whose naked body was covered with flies. God, that was like my film idea! We’d met briefly at the Indica Gallery; what I remembered most about John from that encounter was that he moved his nose extremely well when I told him to breathe – as part of my artwork. But the book showed me John’s soul, a witty, funny, and relentlessly romantic spirit with a taste for the grotesque as well. I never thought for a moment that this was the man I was to share tears and laughter with for many years to come.’ — Yoko Ono, February 1986

    , is the third, and last, book written by English musician John Lennon. It was published posthumously in 1986 and included an afterword by Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, whom he married in 1969. Like his other books, it contains miscellaneous writings and cartoons. The book includes Lennon's autobiography (titled "The Ballad of John and Yoko", also the title of a song), in which he talks about the Beatles' break-up ("I started the band. I disbanded it.") and says that he has no hard feelings against his former bandmates: "Paul, George, and It's Only Ringo. I bear them no ill will." However, he also referred to them as "avant-garde revolutionary thinkers" a statement which could be interpreted as sarcastic in intent and declared "In retrospect, the Beatles were no more an important part of my life than any other (and less than some)."

    Lennon mentioned the manuscript in a 1980 Playboy interview: "At one point [during his five-year "retirement" from music]... I wrote about two hundred pages of mad stuff". The manuscript was stolen from the Lennons' apartment in 1982, and later recovered in 1986, when Ono had it published.
