The Making of John Lennon goes behind the scenes of any official Beatles story, uncovering the different sides of John Lennon. Francis Kenny relates Lennon’s difficult childhood to his creative processes, delving into his dark inner life, and his working relationships – with his family, his fellow Beatles, Stuart Sutcliffe, Brian Epstein, Cynthia Lennon, Yoko Ono, and his children.

This is the story of the making of a legend.

This is a challenge to the orthodox versions of the ‘Lennon Story’. The Making of John Lennon presents a journey into the confusion and pain that lay behind one of popular music’s most researched, yet most misunderstood geniuses. What follows is how John Lennon came to be John Lennon, musical legend. And it all starts in Liverpool.

Drawing on his own intimate knowledge of Liverpool, Francis Kenny teases out the range of experiences that shaped John Lennon. He delves into the distinctive history of Lennon’s city, his turbulent family background, his perceptions of social class, his experiences of fame, and his dark, complex psychological motivations.

With a focus on Liverpool life during Lennon’s formative years, The Making of John Lennon offers a unique perspective on the private life of the sensitive Liverpool boy who became a global icon.
