Book Brief: Nowhere Man

Nowhere Man: The Final Days of John Lennon
by Robert Rosen
Genre: Nonfiction/Biography/Memoir

The “official” version of John’s five-year tenure as househusband was one of domestic bliss. In reality, Lennon’s daily life at the Dakota drifted between contradictory desires and minor obsessions—all magnified by the tedium of isolation.

Nowhere Man is an intimate journey through Lennon’s last years, carrying us from his self-imposed seclusion to his re-entry into public life with the making of Double Fantasy. Rosen does not let us go until we’ve faced the abrupt and tragic fate of one of the most creative minds of our time.
