Now 76, Yoko Ono has said she will write an autobiography that will focus on her life with John Lennon. The book will be written over a period of several years. reports Ono said, "I would love to do it. I just have to find the time.
"It will be my next book, which will be written in the next five years."
This is a change of mind for Ono, who had previously said she did not want to release a book about her time with Lennon because she did not want to cause any suffering for the families of people close to the group, including John's ex-wife Cynthia Lennon.
Apparently, Ono is eager to talk about her time with John and clear up the myths that surround the Beatles breakup. Ono has been accused of being a major factor in the band's demise.
Yoko is looking forward to revealing all about their affair and dispel the myths surrounding The Beatles' break up. quotes a Beatles expert who said: "Unlike Cynthia, Yoko has never really told her side of the Beatles story and the truth about her affair and subsequent marriage to John, so the book will be much awaited.
"She's always maintained she never broke up The Beatles, so this will be her chance to put the record straight."
Lennon was murdered in 1980.
