  • 《일하는 스페인 사람》(A Spaniard in the Works)은 1965년 6월 24일 발표된 존 레논의 책이다. 이 책은 저자의 1964년 책 《그 자신의 이야기》와 비슷한 스타일의 터무니없는 이야기와 그림을 담고 있다. 책의 제목은 "a spanner in the works"을 말장난한 것이다. 책은 전작과 마찬가지로 베스트셀러가 되었다. 미국에서는 같은 해 7월 출간됐고, 그 뒤에 펭귄 출판사가 두 권을 하나로 합본해 《더 펭귄 존 레논》이라는 제목으로 발행한다. 레논이 슈퍼맨처럼 포즈를 취한 책 표지는 인기 그래픽 디자이너 앨런 올드리지가 작업했다.

  • The second book was more disciplined because it was started from scratch. They said, "You've got so many months to write a book in." I wrote In His Own Write – at least some of it – while I was still at school, and it came spontaneously. But once it became: "We want another book from you, Mr. Lennon," I could only loosen up to it with a bottle of Johnnie Walker, and I thought, "If it takes a bottle every night to get me to write..." That's why I didn't write any more. (en)
