JOHN LENNON AND THE MERCY STREET CAF? by William Hammett is indeed a good read. Imagining Lennon's return today, combined with his meeting other great people in history, echoes some of the great biographies and autobiographies from our Western heritage even though this is fiction with bits of reality spliced in. Lennon brings his message of peace to countless people in a most unexpected way and in the process finds his own deeper meaning and inner peace. In this book of "magical realism," Hammett is able to articulate some of the deeper, forgotten truths about human life. A great read.
