Except John Lennon's parents were broke. His dad was a dick and left the family home, and his mum was knocked down by a car and killed.

The relationships thing I'm taking with a pinch of salt. None of it adds up. I'm doing the same with the entire book, although it's not a denial that Richey could be/was a bell end. Nobody's perfect and I never imagined he was for a second.

Grateful for the York Notes!
