The only in-depth biographical account of the legendary lead singer of Joy Division, written by his widow. Includes a foreword by Jon Savage and an introduction by Joy Division drummer, Steven Morris. Revered by his peers and idolized by his fans, Ian Curtis left behind a legacy rich in artistic genius. Mesmerizing on stage but introverted and prone to desperate mood swings in his private life, Curtis died by his own hand on 18 May 1980. Touching from a Distance documents how, with a wife, child and impending international fame, Curtis was seduced by the glory of an early grave. Regarded as the essential book on the essential icon of the post-punk era, Touching from a Distance includes a full set of Curtis's lyrics and a discography and gig list.

“No Wife Beater Is A Hero”

I read this book with increasing horror. Curtis was a petulant, selfish, controlling man, who was sometimes violent to his wife. He took money from her purse for cigarettes while she had no money to feed their child.... More

“A hero in music”

Existence well what does it matter?
I exist on the best terms I can
The past is now part of my future
The present is well out of hand

Love you Ian. One of the biggest musicians ever
