We are The Clash tells a complex story of a band that was a key player in the original wave of British punk rock. Thoroughly researched account of the band’s last years, their struggle to stay true to their ideals and the political climate in both UK and US with the rise of a right-wing power. It’s a biography of “The Only Band That Matters” as much as a political history of the late seventies and early eighties. Andersen and Heibutzki remind us that the greatness of The Clash lay in their willingness to push the envelope on all levels and that their music and their message together made them a band that truly mattered.

Saying I loved this book would almost feel like an understatement. The minute I started reading it I got pulled in and couldn't stop until I was done. With beautiful prose, Sarah Winman tells a warm and utterly heart-breaking story. Ellis and Michael are connected, seemingly by fate, at the moment in their lives when they both lose their mothers and need to feel connected to someone. And the connection they make is the one that lasts a lifetime, the one that gets them through, and can't be broken even with the years they spend apart not knowing what the other is doing. Told from both Elli's and Michael's perspective, Tin Man is a story of loss, pain, secrets and shattering loneliness. But above all it’s a story of love and friendship, the need we all feel, to be connected and to belong.

So, the governments of different countries agree upon a war that would help with that problem, obliterating most them. But, on the other hand there’s a mysterious black - blue book passed to the chosen ones who will rise and bring the change. Adjustment day is coming, and anything can happen.
