This review is from: Truth and Beauty: the Story of Pulp (Paperback)
Definitive. Descriptive. What a book.
If you follow a band with any great interest then you start to pick up various little factoids, half-remembered quotations and anecdotes that make you feel slightly cool and "I was there" whenever the band is mentioned. Unfortunately, if you're anything like me then remembering all this stuff is impossible and you need something to dip into and refresh your memory once in a while.
Sturdy's epic tome includes virtually every fact and opinion pertaining to Pulp that's been published, arranged in chronological order. So you also get an unputdownable history of the band as well.
If you liked the band, if you lived the era, read this book.
