Touching from a Distance Summary


Touching from a Distance by Deborah Curtis

The only in-depth biographical account of the legendary lead singer of Joy Division, written by his widow. Revered by his peers and idolized by his fans, Ian Curtis left behind a legacy rich in artistic genius. Mesmerizing on stage but introverted and prone to desperate mood swings in his private life, Curtis died by his own hand on 18 May 1980. Touching from a Distance documents how, with a wife, child and impending international fame, Curtis was seduced by the glory of an early grave. Regarded as the essential book on the essential icon of the post-punk era, Touching from a Distance includes a full set of Curtis's lyrics and a discography and gig list.

Touching from a Distance Reviews


'An extraordinary book, a steely-eyed look at the pitfalls of fame and a fascinating insight into one man's heart and soul, written by the only person qualified for the job. Most books about rock and roll cling greedily to the myths of the subject; this one tears them apart.' Ian Rankin
