The true story of the woman John Lennon loved.
This is the ultimate biography and reference guide to Yoko Ono's life and work. It is the first extensive exploration of Yoko’s amazing life, struggles, art, activism, films and music in stunning detail.
Includes deeply insightful details about Ono’s life (thirty-three years before meeting Lennon, twelve years with him, and over forty years of creativity since his death).
Read about Yoko’s early work, her activism for peace and for women’s rights. The book addresses the undeserved negativity that she has received throughout her life as an Asian woman, as a child of war in Japan and as the wife of one of the Beatles. We can all learn from Yoko's positivity and effective healing methods. The book illuminates her spiritual nature and her wisdom.
The author has followed Ono's career since the mid-1960s, assembling a vast media archive on the artist. Yoko's own voice, along with Lennon's and others (in cited rare interviews) tell her true story.
Yoko's incredible body of work expresses all the joy and sorrow of an extraordinary lifetime.
