En casa de John Lennon by Rosaura López Lorenzo and Eduardo Herrero Lapido.
Rosaura was present throughout some of the most intimate years of Lennon’s life; a time when little is known about his activities as he opted to stay at home and devote himself to his wife and family. This Galician woman was a privileged eye-witness of the daily life of this idol of masses in a setting that even today draws dozens of curious onlookers every day.
Financial profit was the last thing on Rosaura’s mind. Indeed, it was only following the continued insistence of Lennon’s devoted fans that she agreed to share her experiences with the rest of the world: in addition to her memories, this work also features photographs, notes, sketches and gifts given to Rosaura by the Lennons. Snapshots of the domestic life of this Liverpool-born man, who, in the company of three friends, moved the world with his music and messages.
Rosaura’s work (written with the help of her friend, the journalist Eduardo Herrero) is an affectionate insight into her unique experience with the Lennon family in New York’s emblematic Dakota Building.
