The Story of Tony and Lindsay Wilson
By Lindsay Reade

In 1977 Manchester figurehead and impresario Tony Wilson married his first wife Lindsay Reade. Thus began a volatile but indelible bond that was to endure until his death 30 years later. Here, Lindsay tells the full story of their intertwining lives, detailing pivotal moments in Manchester's history, from the founding of Factory Records to the recording of Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures, from her role in the discovery of the Stone Roses to the emergence of the 'Madchester' scene, and the making of the films Control and 24 Hour Party People. A poignant chronicle of love and loss, the book paints an incisive portrait of a modern legend.
