Continued from page 1

For Joy Division purists, Hook doesn’t hold back. The pages ooze with tales of sex, drugs and rock `n’ roll, all told in the author’s plain-spoken, if not coarse, style.

“Unknown Pleasures” works on a completely different level, though. At its core, the book is more character study than band bio.

And for that, the pleasure is all ours.
