Book Review: John Lennon 1980 – The Last Days In The Life

Womack’s book is a vivid account of how John Lennon lived and worked during the final, revitalized year of his life. It’s the story of how a once creative individual overcame obstacles to rediscover his muse and re-enter “the game,” culminating in the release of his and Yoko Ono’s Double Fantasy album. An engrossing read for Beatles fans, Womack’s thoroughly researched book focuses not on how Lennon died tragically, but on how he lived fully during that last year of his life. The book comes with a tribute CD from Jem Records featuring artists including The Anderson Council, The Gripweeds and Richard Barone.
