I want to tell the real story of the real John—the infuriating, lovable, sometimes cruel, funny, talented and needy man who made such an impact on the world.

The Extraordinary Story of a Man, a Legend and a
When she was eighteen years old, a girl named Cynthia
Powell met a boy named John Lennon and they fell in love.
Their ten-year relationship coincided with the start of the
Beatles phenomenon—from Liverpool’s dockside clubs to the
dizzying worldwide fame that followed. And Cynthia Lennon,
John’s first wife, was an integral part of the swirl of
events that are now an indelible part of the history of
rock and roll.
In John, Cynthia recalls those times with the loving
honesty of an insider, offering new and fascinating
insights into the life of John Lennon and the early days of
the Beatles. And with the perspective only years can
provide she also tells the compelling story of her marriage
to a man who was to become a music legend, a cultural hero
and a defining figure of the twentieth century.
Cynthia has seldom talked in any detail about her marriage
and the painful events that followed John’s tragic
assassination in 1980. Now she candidly reveals the good
and the bad, the loving and the cruel sides of John. She
tells of the breakdown of their marriage and the beginning
of his relationship with Yoko Ono in more detail than has
ever been disclosed before and documents the difficulties
estrangement from John—and his subsequent death—brought for
herself and their son, Julian.
In John, Cynthia Lennon has created a vivid portrait of the
1960s, the Beatles and the man she never stopped loving.
The time has come when I feel ready to tell the truth about
John and me, our years together and the years since his
death. There is so much that I have never said, so many
incidents I have never spoken of and so many feelings I
have never expressed: great love on one hand; pain, torment
and humiliation on the other. Only I know what really
happened between us, why we stayed together, why we parted
and the price I have paid for being John’s wife.
