Very interesting recounting of John Lennon's last days...

Inside information on the last 5 years of John Lennon's life from the perspective of Yoko Ono's tarot card reader. The years that John referred to as his househusband period, was actually a time of lethargy, apathy, & songwriter's block. The Lennons employed too many servants-including a nanny- to necessitate a househusband.

Green documents John's descent into depression, sometimes bordering on psychosis, culminating in a 15-month period of self-imposed solitude in his Dakota apartment bedroom. Yoko copes with John's hermeticism by throwing herself into the business of making money for the family by acting as John's Apple representative, and through a number of unusual investments-including organic farming and the purchase of an ancient sarcophagus.
