ONE OF DAVID BOWIE’S TOP 100 MUST READ BOOKS
THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE 2013 DOCUMENTARY FILM TEENAGE
WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION FROM THE AUTHOR

The acclaimed history of the century and a half of ferment, folly and angst that resulted in the arrival of ‘the teenager’ in 1945, from award-winning, Sunday Times bestselling author Jon Savage.

‘One of Britain’s most trusted cultural historians.’
THE FACE

Ringing with music, from ragtime to swing, Teenage roams London, New York, Paris and Berlin with hooligans and Apaches; explores free love and eternal youth; meets flappers and zootsuiters, the Bright Young People and the Lost Generation. The stories come fast and furious, comic, poignant, painfully moving; Savage fuses popular culture, politics and social history into a stunning chronicle of modern life.

‘Compulsive reading . . . a rich, rewarding book that makes an important contribution to cultural history.’
NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

‘The definitive history of youth in revolt.’
ROLLING STONE

‘[Savage] can bring a beguiling blend of gravitas, wit, scholarship, and a slyly appreciative eye for the subversive, to any topic he approaches. Teenage provides a panoramic scope for his talents.’
INDEPENDENT

‘Savage has produced a book that may well change how people think about teenagers.’
GUARDIAN

(This book is part of a reissue of Jon Savage’s seminal works: 1966, Teenage, and England’s Dreaming)

This Searing Light, the Sun and Everything Else Joy Division: the Oral History


The SUNDAY TIMES Top Ten Bestseller
#1 Book of the Year, UNCUT
#1 Book of the Year, ROUGH TRADE
Book of the Year, MOJO

Over the course of two albums and some legendary gigs, Joy Division became the most successful and exciting underground band of their generation. Then, on the brink of a tour to America, Ian Curtis took his own life.

In This Searing Light, the Sun and Everything Else, Jon Savage has assembled three decades’ worth of interviews with the principal players in the Joy Division story to create an intimate, candid and definitive account of the band. It is the story of how a group of young men can galvanise a generation of fans, artists and musicians with four chords and three-and-a-half minutes of music. And it is the story of how illness and inner demons can rob the world of a shamanic lead singer and visionary lyricist.
