Seit dreißig Jahren sucht Hunter Davies nach Schriftstücken von John Lennon. Von intellektuellem Geist und poetischer Begabung, war Lennon nicht nur Mitbegründer der Beatles, Komponist und Sänger, sondern auch Schriftsteller, Zeichner und Friedensaktivist, der die Träume ganzer Generationen spiegelte. Wann immer er eine Idee für einen Songtext hatte, einen Gedanken, einen Wunsch: Füller, Tinte und Papier dienten ihm, sich mitzuteilen. Die »John Lennon Letters« waren auf der ganzen Welt verstreut, Davies spürte sie auf in Auktionshäusern, Zeitungsredaktionen, Museen, bei Privatpersonen. Jetzt erscheinen sie erstmals als Buch. Weise, verrückt, lustig oder herzzerreißend: Die Briefe erlauben einen unverstellten und sehr intimen Blick auf John Lennon, einen der größten Künstler des 20. Jahrhunderts.
