Great Regulars: This realization, this strange dislocation,

struck me again when I picked up "The John Lennon Letters" (Little, Brown: 392 pp., $29.99), a collection of 285 letters, postcards and inscriptions, edited and with an accompanying text by Beatle historian Hunter Davies. I can do without Davies' commentary; if you know the Lennon story, there is little here that's new. But the letters offer an opportunity to see Lennon less as icon than as human being.
