This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
John Winston Lennon was shot outside the Dakota Building on December 8, 1980. In November of 2006, he finds himself standing in Grand Central Station, unaware that he was assassinated. Is he a ghost? Perhaps not. On her way home from work, ad exec Amy Parisi sees the former Beatle sitting alone in the Mercy Street Café in Greenwich Village. There’s only one problem: there’s no Mercy Street in the Village, and Amy is the only one who can see the café. In the weeks that follow, Amy and Lennon take one of the most incredible road trips in rock and roll history, one far stranger than any acid-induced hallucination from the sixties.
John Lennon and the Mercy Street Café is the story of a man, the voice of an entire generation, who must face the inner demons that plagued both his childhood and his years as the most recognizable figure in popular music. As he does so, he is given the opportunity to leave his indelible mark on the world one last time, showing how hope and the power of music can indeed give peace to a chaotic world.
If you are one of the millions who has been captivated by a man who was both clown and political activist, then step into the Mercy Street Café and meet the legend from Liverpool. But pack your bags for a magical mystery tour that leaves the rational Newtonian world behind. You are about to enter the world of John Lennon.
