Olivia Harrison’s New Book ‘Came The Lightening’ Out Now

21 June 2022

Came the Lightening, Twenty Poems for George to mark the 20th anniversary of his passing is in bookstores now.

Came the Lightening, sees Olivia examining the intimacy and emotional connection of their relationship in a memorable series of poems. She delves into the phenomenon of losing a partner and the passage of time.

The poetry is accompanied by a selection of photographs and mementos curated by Olivia.

Martin Scorsese, a long-time friend, and director of the 2011 documentary, George Harrison: Living in the Material World, writes:

“Olivia evokes the most fleeting gestures and instants, plucked from the flow of time and memory and felt through her choice of words and the overall rhythm.

“She might have done an oral history or a memoir. Instead, she composed a work of poetic autobiography.”
