5.0 out of 5 stars And here's mine...., 13 Sept. 2010
Tony Wilson was someone who I'd heard about, seen on telly, knew he'd had something to do with the hacienda and joy division/new order, and who had some sort of manchester connection. But I wasn't an expert on his life and his influence - nor on his idiosyncracies, his foibles and his love of a quotation. Nolan's book informs, amuses and entertains - and does it through the sheer weight of research, personal knowledge and narrative structure. It's a fascinating glimpse into one man's input into a city culture which really did make waves, and it's a tale told by someone who knew him, respected him and was there or thereabouts when most of it happened. It's a book full of great interviews, great pictures, and terrific detail - and a story that took me right back to the 80s and 90s. I finished it fascinated and informed - as well as entertained and impressed.
