Peter Hook Penned Joy Division Memoir Set For October Release

NME are reporting the the book will be released on the 1st October through Simon and Schuster.

Peter Hook seems to have written a Joy Division memoir, which looks set for release at the start of October.

NME are reporting the the book will be released on the 1st October through Simon and Schuster, titled ‘Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division’.

Hook spoke to Consequence of Sound last year about his reasoning behind the memoir, saying: “I’m sick of everyone reading books about Joy Division by people who weren’t there and weren’t even close to us at all. There were a lot of things that were wrong, in those books, as well as annoying.”

“In a funny way– I’m hoping that the Joy Division book will maybe give me an understanding of why Ian [Curtis]…killed himself. It’s very unsettling actually, because it was a very intense amount of time.”

This will not be Hook’s first foray into publishing, after he penned ‘The Hacienda: How Not To Run A Club’, which was released back in 2009.
