About The Book

'Genuinely funny: indeed, the story will… keep you entertained for a very long time' Sunday Times

Joy Division changed the face of music. Godfathers of the current alternative scene, they reinvented rock in the post-punk era, creating a new sound - dark, hypnotic, intense - that would influence U2, Morrissey, R.E.M., Radiohead and many others. This is the story of Joy Division told by the band's legendary bassist, Peter Hook.

'Hook has restored a flesh-and-blood rawness to what was becoming a standard tale. Few pop music books manage that'Guardian

'An honest, enthusiastic account … It's a window like no other into the reality of life in this most aloof of bands' METRO

'An immense account of Joy Division's rise…Having read Hook's book, you'll feel like you were the fifth member of the band' GQ

'A bittersweet, profanity filled recollection… If you like Joy Division, you really have to read it' Q Magazine

'Hook lifts the lid on the real Ian Curtis' NME

'He's frank, incredibly funny, and isn't shy'Artrocker
