Skywriting by Word of Mouth

"Skywriting by Word of Mouth" was the third and last of John Lennon's books to be published. It was written during the mid-late 1970s, but was not published until 1986. The book also includes "The Ballad of John and Yoko", a short autobiography.

Yoko Ono provided an Afterword for the book, in which she said, "John wrote Skywriting at a time when the world was wondering whatever had happened to him. Why wasn't he writing songs anymore? Well, this was what he was busy doing. He would write one page and ask me to read it back to him, and we'd laugh. It was a fun time."
