Yoko Ono is known the world over -- primarily as either John Lennon's second wife or 'the woman who split the Beatles'. However Yoko was with John for just fourteen years. She is now well into her seventies. And The Beatles would have split anyway. This book takes the entire life, loves, art and career of Yoko Ono as its subject matter, and for the first time tells her complete story -- from her upbringing in a post nuclear Japan, through schooling in New York and her entry into that city's modern art community, through her move to London in the 1960s and her first meeting there with John Lennon. The 'Lennon Years' are covered in detail as are the years following his death, as she brought up the couples' son Sean by herself. The story is completed with an appraisal of Yoko Ono's art and music, which has rarely been the subject of any serious discussion in this kind of book. Book jacket.

Review: Woman: The Incredible Life of Yoko Ono

User Review  - Erin Tuzuner - Goodreads

The rendering of such an interesting subject could have been due to the multiple authors, but as such, was sloppy and a bit condescending. Yoko Ono deserves better. Read full review
