  • In His Own Write is a 1964 nonsense book by English musician John Lennon. His first book, it consists of poems and short stories ranging from eight lines to three pages, as well as illustrations. After Lennon showed journalist Michael Braun some of his writings and drawings, Braun in turn showed them to Tom Maschler of publisher Jonathan Cape, who signed Lennon in January 1964. He wrote most of the content expressly for the book, though some stories and poems had been published years earlier in the Liverpool music publication Mersey Beat. Lennon's writing style is informed by his interest in English writer Lewis Carroll, while humorists Spike Milligan and "Professor" Stanley Unwin inspired his sense of humour. His illustrations imitate the style of cartoonist James Thurber. Many of the book's pieces consist of private meanings and in-jokes, while also referencing Lennon's interest in physical abnormalities and expressing his anti-authority sentiments. The book was both a critical and commercial success, selling around 300,000 copies in Britain. Reviewers praised it for its imaginative use of wordplay and favourably compared it to the later works of James Joyce, though Lennon was unfamiliar with him. Later commentators have discussed the book's prose in relation to Lennon's songwriting, both in how it differed from his contemporary writing and in how it anticipates his later work, heard in songs like "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "I Am the Walrus". Released amidst Beatlemania, its publication reinforced perceptions of Lennon as "the smart one" of the Beatles, and helped to further legitimise the place of pop musicians in society. Since its release, the book has been translated into several languages. In 1965, Lennon released another book of nonsense literature, A Spaniard in the Works. He abandoned plans for a third collection and did not publish any other books in his lifetime. Victor Spinetti and Adrienne Kennedy adapted his two books into a one-act play, The Lennon Play: In His Own Write, produced by the National Theatre Company and first performed in June 1968 to mixed reviews.

  • 《그 자신의 이야기》(In His Own Write)는 존 레논이 처음 출판한 책이다. 1964년 3월 24일 발표된 이 책은 종종 초현실주의와 문학적 비상식을 전제로 하는 짧은 이야기와 시, 그리고 라인 드로잉이 수록되어 있다. 비틀즈의 멤버가 창조적 표현 수단을 책 형식으로 내보인 첫 프로젝트다. 이어 1965년에 레논은 《일하는 스페인 사람》을 출판하였다. (ko)
  • På eget sätt (i original In His Own Write) är titeln på John Lennons första bok, publicerad för första gången den 27 april 1964. Boken blev en omedelbar framgång och består av korta texter, dikter och teckningar - ofta med surrealistiska inslag. Detta var det första soloprojektet av någon medlem av Beatles och året därpå släppte Lennon boken A Spaniard in the Works, på svenska En spann jord i maskineriet. I England såldes boken i 50 000 exemplar redan första dagen, vilket ledde till att förlaget lät trycka upp 90 000 exemplar då boken skulle marknadsföras i USA. Sen dess har det tryckts ett flertal upplagor av boken, även i pocketform. En pjäs baserad på boken hade premiär i juni 1968, och denna pjäs skrevs tillsammans med Victor Spinetti. Både Spinetti och Lennon medverkade i mindre roller under premiären. (sv)

  • You just stick a few images together, thread them together, and you call it poetry. But I was just using the mind that wrote In His Own Write to write that song. (en)
  • I really didn't think the book would even get reviewed by the book reviewers... I didn't think people would accept the book like they did. To tell you the truth they took the book more seriously than I did myself. It just began as a laugh for me. (en)
  • It's about nothing. If you like it, you like it; if you don't, you don't. That's all there is to it. There's nothing deep in it, it's just meant to be funny. I put things down on sheets of paper and stuff them in my pocket. When I have enough, I have a book. (en)
  • I used to hide my real emotions in gobbledegook, like In His Own Write. When I wrote teenage poems, I wrote in gobbledeggook because I was always hiding my real emotions from [my aunt] Mimi [Smith]. (en)
