Sidgwick & Jackson, London - first UK edition ISBN:0283999373, 1991. Hardcover, 6¼" x 9½", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket. Black cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, 18 b&w photographs, epilogue, and discography. 'Dire Straits' is the biggest group in the world, but until now there has never been a book about Mark Knopfler, their songwriter, singer and producer. Learn how the rebellious schoolboy tried newspaper reporting for two years, went to Leeds University to study English, joined a blues group and became a teacher in Essex, where he formed a part-time rockabilly band with an extrovert sociology lecturer called Dave Pask. Until now, almost nothing was known about the 'Café Racers', the group which proved to be the turning point in Knopfler's life. This penetrating book probes beyond the public relations façade which all superstars erect, and provides detail on every stage of a unique career.
