The years John Lennon spent in New York were years of great personal and professional development for him. John Lennon: The New York Years, which spans 1971 to 1980, is an intimate portrait of John Lennon through the lens and the pen of one of the people who knew him best - his friend and personal photographer, Bob Gruen. From the One to One concert at Madison Square Garden to Lennon's return to New York from his "Lost Weekend," from the birth of Sean Lennon to recording sessions for Lennon's last album, Double Fantasy, the images from their decade of friendship, some of which have never before been seen, fill the pages of this book.
Throughout, Gruen also shares his personal stories about what was happening behind the scenes - like the time Yoko and Lennon danced with joy on hearing "Starting Over" on the radio, or when Lennon asked Gruen to develop pictures of the UFO he'd seen from his rooftop. This unique photo journal provides a firsthand look at what life was like with Lennon on a day-to-day basis.
