Synopsis

John Lennon by Harriet Castor

Each title in this series tells the story of a man or woman whose dedication to their chosen cause led to changes that affect all our lives today. Each includes a vivid description of the world in which the famous person lived. This book describes the life of one the world's most famous twentieth-century musicians. From obscure beginnings in Liverpool, where schoolmasters thought he would never amount to much, to worldwide fame as an adored pop singer, Lennon's story is the story of the Sixties. Dramatic narrative and well-drawn illustrations take the reader through the social upheaval of the time through Lennon's escapades, such as wild living and demonstrations against war. The book describes the way people lived then, and how pop stars coped with fame. Lennon's violent death is movingly described and shows the reader that fame is not always a good thing.
