Reviews

"Excellent ... it's the ultimate oral history of one of rock's most haunting legends" -- Rob Sheffield Rolling Stone
"Fans of the band will delight in the intimacy of the many stories and anecdotes, some of which are being shared publicly for the first time.... This Searing Light, The Sun And Everything Else represents the consolidated authoritative history of this important band, and as such it may in fact prove to be the last word on the topic. For fans of Joy Division, and of punk, post-punk, and British music generally, this is a must read."--Brooklyn Rail
