This month marks the 40th anniversary of the murder of legendary musician John Lennon. In a new book, Boston College alumnus Dave Wedge and his frequent co-author Casey Sherman team up with bestselling novelist James Patterson to tell the story of Lennon, from his childhood days to Beatles superstardom to his maturity as an artist, husband, and father. The Last Days of John Lennon (Little Brown and Co., 2020) includes exclusive interviews with Lennon’s friends and associates, including Paul McCartney. According to the publisher: “The Last Days of John Lennon is the thrilling true story of two men who changed history: One whose indelible songs enliven our world to this day—and the other who ended the beautiful music with five pulls of a trigger.” WBUR interview.
