Ian Curtis was certainly a tormented soul

i have been reading Touching from a Distance by Deborah Curtis.
i would reccomend any Joy Divison fan or infact anyone, to read it.
its the book that Control was based on. here is the trailer...

When the routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And the resentment rides high
But emotions wont grow
And were changing our ways,
Taking different roads
Then love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side?
Is my timing that flawed,
Our respect run so dry?
Yet theres still this appeal
That weve kept through our lives
Love, love will tear us apart again

Do you cry out in your sleep
All my failings exposed?
Get a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Is it something so good
Just cant function no more?
When love, love will tear us apart again

is it really that good? the book I mean. Ian Curtis got me all depressed. I'm not sure if I can read anything about him for now.

I really wanted to read that book by our very own Remus Lupin but I'm not too sure cos I read an interview of him telling that the book was influenced by Lennon's life story..so..Lennon/Curtis..I'm torn..
