The Last Days of John Lennon

James Patterson

Overview

John Lennon's last days began the moment he met Paul McCartney, as a 16-year-old in Liverpool. With The Beatles, Lennon reached levels of fame never before seen in music history. However, his influence made him a target for controversy and violence.

James Patterson is a best-selling author whose books have sold over 400 million copies worldwide. In The Last Days of John Lennon, written with journalists Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge, Patterson tells the story of Lennon's fame, from his teenage days in Liverpool to his final minutes in a New York hospital.

Using interviews with Lennon's friends and colleagues, Patterson explores the musician's remarkable life, detailing exactly how his tragic death, at Mark Chapman's hands, came to be.

Favorite Quote

"The enormity of what he's done settles on him. The dream is no longer a dream but an unshakeable, unalterable reality. He has gone from unseen to seen. From unknown to known. From nobody to somebody."
