Reviews

James Mitchell carefully and lovingly has reconstructed an inspiring and poignant chapter both in John Lennon's odyssey and in the tangled flow of the American anti-war and other protest movements of the late nineteen sixties and early seventies. The Walrus and The Elephants is an indispensable window into an amazing time in American history and the history of rock and roll. --Danny Goldberg, author of Bumping Into Geniuses

This book serves as a backstage pass to the missing link between Lennon's music and his activism, ranging from decriminalization of marijuana to termination of undeclared war--both ends of that spectrum fueled by the government's misuse of power without compassion--revealing how the Nixon administration tried to silence him. --Paul Krassner, author of Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut: Misadventures in the Counterculture Lennon is one of the most documented individuals in modern culture, yet never before has this early New York period of his history been examined with greater depth and clarity. --Lee Ranaldo, co-founder of Sonic Youth
