In Your Mind by Madeline Bocaro is an all-embracing look at Yoko Ono’s life and work, in stunning detail. This 554-page book is for superfans of her art and music. It is also for anyone who is seriously interested in learning about this extraordinary woman.
We will visit Yoko’s inner and outer worlds. If you dislike her, you will learn not to. If you love her, you will sing along. Your mind will slow down. You will see the wind and hear the silence. Her meanings and intent will come to light. You will see negative space in a positive way, and will be touched by her wit and wisdom, her genius and whimsy.
Her work is unfinished – to be completed in your mind.
Yoko’s eternal partnership with John Lennon is also unfinished. Their love story, and their work towards peace includes all of us. Yoko still believes in the power of dreaming together.
"Very beautiful. You always capture their spirit and vision. You tell her story so well and it’s very important that someone does. Yoko spent so much of her life being misunderstood and misrepresented. She is such a special person and artist, the world needs the record you are creating. I am amazed not only by how much you know about Yoko, but also how well you write about it. Thank you for what you are doing. It’s wonderful to see Yoko and her art celebrated."
"What a treasure trove of Yoko information! Thank you for including Yoko’s own words. I am breathless just reading them. The cherry on top is her eternal positivity."
"Something I love about your writing style… It feels like one of the few holdouts for genuine fandom not corrupted by money or jockeying for social status, just a genuine love for the artist and her work."
"You have created a paradise for those of us needing Yoko’s wisdom in our own lives. Every day is filled with Yokoness thanks to you. Your stories have so much detail, with hidden surprises."
"This is definitely your doctoral dissertation on Yoko. You beautifully explain the myriad of facets that Yoko shows the world ... if our hearts and minds are receptive. I love your many insights. This one really speaks to me: “Yoko is like a polished gemstone – radiating after years of abrasion.” Many thanks for sharing your Yoko wisdom."
"Everything you have written is amazing, knowledgeable and enlightening. This is a work of beauty to be savored. I like to choose certain moments to read and writhe in blissful marvel."
"I’m blown away by the depth and breadth of your knowledge, as well as how elegantly you present it."
"As always your writing reaches the depths of Yoko’s soul and you bring us that as a precious gift. I feel so enlightened."
"You make your idol come alive. You write so skillfully and emotionally."
