But although mesmerising on stage, in his private life he was introverted and had desperate mood swings. In Touching from a Distance his widow pieces together why - despite his impending international fame and young family - Curtis died by his own hand on 18 May1980. Regarded as the essential book on the essential icon of the post-punk era, Touching from a Distance includes a full set of Curtis' lyrics, discography and gig list.
