Customer Review

on 31 July 2009
Inevitable someone was going to tackle Wilson's life - but this isn't the expected book at all. Yes the Factory Records/ Hacienda stories are all here ... it's to be expected and it's thoroughly done by someone who clearly knows his stuff. But there's so much more. Wilson's childhood is well and truly revealed (first of many surprises) as are his personal entanglements, his telly career (usually overlooked, but covered here including his many triumphs and sackings)and his battle with cancer. Really brave of his partner to talk about this. The chapter where the author gives the text over to her is really moving (there's a donation to a cancer charity for every copy). There's even a breakdown of all the weird Factory catalogue numbers right down to the most obscure item for all the trainspotters. Woolly hats and menstrual timers anyone? All here. Class.
