In UNKNOWN PLEASURES: Inside Joy Division Peter Hook covers the band's friendships and fall-outs; their rehearsals and recording sessions; Peter gives a truly fascinating insight, as only an insider can, into the larger-than-life characters who formed a vital part of the Joy Division legend.


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
