Crown/Archetype, Feb 17, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 320 pages
14 Reviews
The New York Times bestselling exposť of the real John Lennon, written by his ex-wife.

There is so much that I have never said, so many incidents I have never spoken of and so many feelings I have never expressed: great love on one hand; pain, torment, and humiliation on the other. Only I know what really happened between us, why we stayed together, why we parted, and the price I have paid for being John’s wife. —From the Introduction
