Peter Hook announces Joy Division memoir

From the Guardian’s website:

Peter Hook will publish a new memoir looking back on his years in Joy Division. Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division follows 2009’s The Haçienda: How Not to Run a Club, which traced the origins of Manchester’s most famous nightclub.

Publishers Simon & Schuster have officially announced the book, which will be published on 1 October. “In [his] frank, no-holds-barred style … Peter ‘Hooky’ Hook gives us the inside story of life with Joy Division,” according to the publisher. “He talks with eye-opening candour and reflection about the suicide of Ian Curtis: often seen as the ‘intellectual one’, to Peter and the band he was just ‘one of the lads’ … [Hook also] covers the band’s friendships and fall-outs; their rehearsals and recording sessions; and the larger-than-life characters who formed a vital part of the Joy Division story.”
