Tony Wilson was a man who became synonymous with his beloved city. As the co-founder of the legendary Factory Records and the Haçienda, he appointed himself a custodian of Manchester's legacy of innovation and change, becoming a cultural pioneer for the North. To Paul Morley, he was this and much more: bullshitting hustler, flashy showman, inventive broadcaster, self-deprecating chancer, publicity seeker, loyal friend. It was Morley to whom Wilson left a daunting final request: to write this book.

From Manchester with Love is the biography of a man who changed the world around him through sheer force of personality. In the cultural theatre of Manchester, Tony Wilson broke in and took centre stage.

'An immersive experience . . . very moving indeed.'
MIRANDA SAWYER, OBSERVER

'Not just a "biog" but the story of a city's history and culture and a unique and disappearing figure.'
STUART MACONIE, NEW STATESMAN

'Morley's biography is as illuminating on Wilson's strange ability to hold others in his orbit, even after his death, as it is on the story of his life.'
THE SPECTATOR

'The man/myth Wilson died aged 57 in 2006, but here he burns on fantastically bright.'
UNCUT

'Compelling . . . befitting its extraordinary subject.'
BRIAN ENO

'Bracing and often surprisingly tender . . . the perfect monument.'
SUNDAY TIMES

'Via Morley's magical prose Tony Wilson comes back to life . . . inspiring.'
RICHARD RUSSELL
