Language: English | 2007 | ISBN: 0571239560 | 240 pages | EPUB | 1,4 MB
The only in-depth biographical account of the lead singer of Joy Division, written by his widow.
Revered by his peers – Bono described his voice as "holy" – and idolized by his fans, Ian Curtis left behind a legacy rich in artistic genius. He was a mesmerizing performer on stage, yet also introverted and prone to mode swings. Enigmatic to the last, Ian Curtis died by his own hand on 18 May 1980.
