Great book by a misunderstood artist 6 mai 2003
Par matthewslaughter - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Since 1968, Yokophobia has prevented people from perceiving reality correctly. Yokophobia was brought on largely because John Lennon was "supposed" to marry a white woman, oh, and, another thing, because the Beatles broke up. Since she has been blamed for this, shattering the delusion that a rock band should last forever (look at the Rolling Stones now for goodness sake!), people have been unusually mean-spirited in their assessment of her work. I can understand why people shy away from her more avant-garde musical output, often consisting of ear-shattering screams (I am one of those sickos that just happens to love it!). But "Grapefruit," one of the most widely distributed pieces of Fluxus-connected/inspired "performance art," is simply irresistible. (Remember, Yoko had a career as an avant-garde artist before she met John Lennon--they met at one of her art exhibits in 1967.) It is serious, excruciatingly humorous and regularly induces smiles--all while simultaneously encouraging its readers to think abstractly, artistically, creatively and irreverently. "Grapefruit" is a breath of fresh sky-blue air from the woman who once asked (on the b-side of John Lennon's "Instant Karma") "Who Has Seen the Wind?"
"Grapefruit" is filled, for the most part, with short, koan-like "pieces" such as "Wall Piece for Orchestra." Yoko directs the piece as follows: "Hit a wall with your head." In "Overtone Piece," Yoko writes, "Make music only with overtones." In the painting pieces section, she instructs her reader, in "Painting for the Wind," to "Make a hole. / Leave it in the wind." In the "events" section, probably the closest here to her performance art, she evokes a giggly pun on "peace" (or maybe "pee") in "Pea Piece," writing, "Carry a bag of peas. / Leave a pea wherever you go." If you find this type of humor and "artistic direction" a waste of time, which many undoubtedly will, then avoid this like the plague. But if you, like me, find this darkly humorous, refreshingly perverse and instructive as to how to live life seriously without taking it too seriously, then "Grapefruit" should find a place on your bookshelf, or, better yet, on your nightstand.

Master Piece 19 avril 2002
Par Junglies - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I bought this book in England in 1970 when it was released with the charming cover of a grapefruit atop a female posterior.
I loved the book and kept it rather than follow Yoko's instructions to burn it afterward.
Yesterday I read it again. It is funny how one's perceptions change over thirty years for better or for worse.
My conclusion is that this book is a Master Piece.
Sorry Yoko!
Please experience this book. SERIOUSLY!

Viva Yoko! 31 octobre 2000
Par Jonathan Lyness - Publié sur
Format: Relié
We are lucky indeed that this book is back in print. I chanced upon an early printing at a used book store years back, and have enjoyed it ever since. Grapefruit is full of Ono's conceptual "paintings", which take the form of instructional poems...they are sometimes insightful, sometimes thought-provoking, sometimes wickedly funny and poignant at the same time ("Hide and Go Seek Piece: Hide until everyone forgets about you. Hide until everyone dies.") Throughout the poems she displays brilliant imagination and a unique appreciation of life. This book is truly you can see from the reviews below, it's not for everybody...but I think anyone with an open mind and a passion for creativity will love it.

Sublime 21 août 2008
Par James R. Francis - Publié sur
Format: Relié
What can be said? On the surface, it's obviously the most pretentious twaddle ever hard-bound--- the constant little descriptions of strangely mute actions that she calls "pieces", each just a couplet long or so, can grate. Why not actually write a real piece of music, or make a painting, you might begin to ask. Well, look closer. Really close. And listen, too. Hear that rustling? That's wit, dry and crisp as bamboo matting under your bare feet. As she guides you through the tiny, many mansions of this curious paper house, familiar incense wafts, a subtle, fragrant empathy for humanity: we who are so frail, so ephemeral, so filled with dreams that long to burst forth like a cache of fireworks. No wonder John loved her.

(I freely admit that, as a fan of her music, I am somewhat biased. I was also lucky enough to experience an entire museum full of her films, sculpture, and other art, in Houston, in 2001.)

Raving Over Grapefruit 24 novembre 2009
Par Kat - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is more than a wonderful book - it is truly a cherished treasure. No one views the world quite like Yoko and no one ever will. She will bring a breath of fresh air to your mind and spirit by asking you to go to the top of a hill, open a bag and pour all the light you can into it. Happiness is connecting with Yoko and shining like a 1000 suns. Grab this while you can before it becomes too scare to find. You won't regret it!
