The long awaited second Peter Hook book â€śUnknown Pleasures - Inside Joy Division" has finally been published today in advance of the accompany signing and event tour which kicks off with a signing in Manchester this coming Monday 1st October at HMV.
Reviews of the book have been highly favourable, MOJO labelling it â€śâ€śthe most colourful and intimate account of Joy Division ever writtenâ€ť and Hooky â€śa marvellous raconteur with keen descriptive skillsâ€ť while Q Magazine termed the memoir, â€śmemoir, a bittersweet, profanity filled recollection of their brief existence, delivered with much often indiscreet detailâ€ť and delivered this final epithet on the book
â€śIf you like Joy Division, you really have to read it.

Loved meeting Peter at the book signing at WHSmiths in Birmingham in October but wish his photographer for the day would post the pictures up of us with him as my stupid camera gave up at the crucial moment!
Taking too long?
