Before the end of the decade, Beatles fans will have a new book in their hands: a memoir by Yoko Ono revolving around her life with John Lennon. "I would love to do it. I just have to find the time," Ono said. "It will be my next book, which will be written in the next five years."
According to Yahoo! U.K., the autobiography will also focus on the duo's intense relationship, the myths surrounding her role in the Beatles' breakup, the bed-in for peace, Lennon's infamous "Lost Weekend" and more.
Yahoo! U.K. reports that Ono had been reluctant to pen a memoir about her life with Lennon "for fear of hurting the families of people close to the group," including Lennon's first wife Cynthia and their son together Julian. Cynthia Lennon wrote her own book recounting her own life with John in A Twist of Lennon in the late 1970s. Cynthia and Yoko were both present at the premiere performance of the Beatles' Cirque de Soliel show Love in 2006.
