Ships with Tracking Number! Some light patchy soiling to interior.

Ln copy has some rubbing wear to both covers, some board edgewear, some edgewear in spine area, browning to extremities of the text block, some light browning to endpapers front and rear. Some inevitable bubbling to the lamination along the joints, very bright inside and out, a near exemplary copy, near fine.
Jun 30, David Miller rated it liked it. At the time, Lennon was beginning to put his introspective nature into his work. Same people who already read “In His Own Write”. This kind of book seems right as a reflection of Lennon’s legacy – one of the world’s biggest pop stars, having a “larf” at his audience while reveling in grotesque satire, pausing frequently to giggle at words that sound sort of like other words.
Some “crinkling” of the laminate. Small book, color-photo-illustrated boards, badly worn at tips, slight wear to spine edges top and bottom, left and right, small surface wear spot at top front left, slight wear spot at top front edge near spine.

Very clever and witty. All the same, it’s the work of an unschooled, immature poet [sigh, that should stir the pot] with a tart sense of humor. But there is a kernel of genius in them and I wonder what he might have done had he I first read Lennon’s books not long after tbe death.
Written by someone who likes playing lenhon language.
In any case, I had a lot of the stories in the book bottled up in my system and it did me good to get rid of them — ‘better out than in’. One of the weirdests books I’ve read, but definitely the most amusing and funniest!! Araminta Ditch had a boyfred who could never see the joke.
