REVIEWS - UNKNOWN PLEASURES:
“revealing and vivid . . .Hook has restored a flesh-and-blood rawness to what was becoming a standard tale. Few pop music books manage that.”
—Andy Beckett, The Guardian
“The most colorful and intimate account of Joy Division ever written . . . Hook evokes the spirit of the age with a bluff authenticity that no outsider could hope to emulate, ….. explaining the creation of his band’s remarkable music with all the passion and insight it deserves.”
—Keith Cameron, MOJO
“A bittersweet, profanity-filled recollection of their brief existence . . . recalled with Hook’s winning Manc gallows humor . . . If you like Joy Division you really have to read it.”
—Ian Harrison, Q Magazine
