'In His Own Write' by John Lennon (1964)

In His Own Write - John Lennon, Yoko Ono

John Lennon, In His Own Write (Harmondsworth: Penguin Books, 1980), 79pp


A decent compilation of nonsense verse and poetry, although the book's writing style can make it hard to understand. My favourite is the deliciously evil 'Good Dog Nigel', and it is no coincidence that this is one of the more straightforward pieces. However, the book and its follow-up, A Spaniard in the Works, probably wouldn't have seen the light of day if not written by a Beatle.
