The Cure are one of the most respected and well-loved of rock's survivors, traceable right back to punk's fabled Bromley Contingent. In Between Days is the first book to make sense of a uniquely versatile band who are far more than the goth band, documenting their development from the new wave of 1979's Boys Don't Cry , the existential rock of Seventeen Seconds , the joyous pop of Wish , the dark beauty of Disintegration --right up to the majesty of Bloodflowers and 2004's The Cure , consecutive twenty-first-century masterpieces.

In Between Days also studies Robert Smith's brilliant interweaving of literary influences, from Mervyn Peake and Coleridge to Albert Camus and Jean Cocteau, to make a fascinating album-by-album, track-by-track study.
