All We Are Saying
THE LAST INTERVIEW WITH JOHN LENNON AND YOKO ONO
On the 21st anniversary of his death, a poignant John Lennon document back in print Lennon’s last interview before his assassination on December 8, 1980, was first published in Playboy in a 20,000 word format in November that year. It saw limited distribution in the US in its full form as a 200-page book, reflecting 20 hours of tapes made that September, but was never seen elsewhere, and is now a collector’s item. This new, revised edition is published with the rare participation of Yoko Ono.
”A fascinating, detailed glimpse into the workings of a musical genius….A valuable piece of work.” – Joe Klein, NY Times Book Review
“David Sheff’s sympathetic questions evoked so much of the Beatle past and of Lennon’s intellectual past and present and future plans that the interview would hardly have been less engrossing and important even it if were not illuminated by tragedy.” – Charles Champlin, Arts Editor, Los Angeles Times
“The interview is lively proof that some of the best Lennon/Ono art was their life.” – Jay Cocks, Time
“The most revealing self portrait of John Lennon’s career….” – People
