Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
In His Own Write features the same sort of surreal turns of phrase that insinuated themselves into late-period Beatles classics such as ‘Come Together’ and ‘Strawberry Fields Forever.’”

San Francisco Chronicle

“Worth the attention of anyone who fears for the impoverishment of the English language and the British imagination.”

The Times Literary Supplement

“[Features] a wit and love of words that recall[s] Joyce and fanciful drawings some compare to Thurber.”

Hartford Courant (Connecticut)

“A quirky, funny collection of stories, poems and drawings.”

The New York Times

“Lunatic humor. . . Zany, offbeat, and illustrated by his grotesque and spidery pen. It jolts the reader into gusts of laughter.”

The Guardian

“Fascinating. . . It goes down like pure whimsy and then back-kicks like a sick mule.”

The Sunday Times

“Bewitching.”

USA Today

“Lennon's marvelously clever In His Own Write was the surprise literary sensation of 1964....you get Lennon's biting humor and brilliant puns: Lewis Carroll as rock star.”

Tampa Tribune
