By Jeff Burlingame

From his days in England as a founding member of the Beatles to his time as a solo musician, peace activist, and stay-at-home dad in his adopted hometown of New York City, John Lennon made a mark on popular culture that is without parallel. Author Jeff Burlingame explores the life of this rebellious and gifted musician, whose music and life story still resonate and remain popular with both young and old some three decades after his untimely death in 1980.

"Lennon’s life is presented with no apologizes by Burlingame in this unauthorized biography . . . Burlingame manages to focus on Lennon’s life beyond the Beatles while still emphasizing the impact that being a part of the Beatles had on his life."

Children's Literature
