Product description


“A potent collection… This matt-black bound collection is likely to be desired by every Joy Division fan. But for those readers who aren’t familiar with the band, these stories exist boldly in their own right… United by some unleashed kinetic force from long ago, these collected stories are achingly modern and fully embrace contemporary anxieties and preoccupations.” – The Observer

“With the spectral presence of Curtis and co. sitting obliquely at the centre, here ten authors go spiralling off in bold, new and highly unexpected directions.” –Benjamin Myers

“A must-buy, not only for Joy Division fans, but for anybody interested in what the short story is doing today.” – John Burnside

“Original and clever, haunting and uplifting. Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures has given birth to something beautiful.” – Alison Moore

From the Back Cover

Joy Division remain one of Britain's most influential and best-loved bands, their music as dramatic and compelling now as when they first appeared almost forty years ago.

Unknown Pleasures, their debut album, is their definitive document, a brooding, thrilling record whose cryptic contents have haunted the imaginations of generations of listeners.

The ten new stories in We Were Strangers, each of which takes its title and inspiration from a song on the album, offer an original, distinctive and wide-ranging response.

Featuring original fiction from, Jenn Ashworth, Anne Billson, David Gaffney, Jessie Greengrass, Zoe Lambert, Toby Litt, Sophie Mackintosh, Louise Marr, Nicholas Royle and Eley Williams, We Were Strangers lights a path through the nocturnal territory mapped out in Unknown Pleasures, taking in tales of isolation and anxiety, but also ecstasy and otherworldly adventure.
