Mourning of John Lennon/Elliott, Antho/Paper/0522848591/S049-A1
Melbourne University Press
"The Mourning of John Lennon is the deepest and most thoughtful book on popular culture and the culture of celebrity to appear in a long time. It explores Lennon's emotional and artistic complexity with rare insight and intelligence. Desire and fear, freedom and pain, irony and nostalgia, rebellion and loss are analyzed not only in Lennon's life and work, but also in the generation that grew up with him." - Jon Wiener, author of Come Together: John Lennon in His Time.
"John Lennon's death has left an appreciation of loss. Yet, through Elliott's book, we recover a powerful sense of those qualities - honesty and idealism, irreverence and excitement - that Lennon represented while he was alive. It's a story we should take heart from." - Paul du Noyer, author of We All Shine On: The Solo Songs of John Lennon.
