By Madeline Bocaro.
The true, complete and deeply insightful story of the extraordinary woman whom John Lennon loved. The incredible love story of John and Yoko, their work together and her relationship to the Beatles is also explored. Ono's incredible story goes way beyond what most people know. There are astounding details about Yoko's life (thirty-three years before meeting Lennon, twelve years with him, and over forty years of creativity since his death).
The author illuminates Ono's spiritual nature and wisdom in this detailed exploration of Yoko's heritage, her childhood, her art, films, music and activism for peace and women's rights. The undeserved negativity that Ono has received throughout her life as an Asian woman, a child of war in Japan and as the wife of one of the Beatles is explored. 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, published interviews) tell her undeniably true story. Bocaro has spent valuable time with Ono, gaining incredible insight. Yoko Ono's work is unfinished – to be completed in your mind.Paper: 558 pp.
