I found this book by John and Yoko’s Tarot reader yesterday.

Give it a read, if you wouldn’t mind  – if it’s good I’ll also seek it out.

Haven’t read it in a while, but I thought it an interesting fiction with possible elements of fact. Definitely falls into the Albert Goldman portrayal of his last years area. I found there were too many conversations remembered verbatim for me to find it believable.

That seems to be the case with all these books. You come away with an impression of how it probably was but it doesn’t feel factually true.

I’ll probably never read Goldman.

I think after reading Seaman, Rosen and Green I’ll probably come away with a pretty good idea of Dakota life. If it’s in all three books it’s probably true. Rosen didn’t actually know John but he had access to his diaries.

Neither – don’t see the point. 

I read Last Days In The Life this year and liked it. Got a good feel of his last years.
