More Reviews Of 'sumptuous' Exile
03 Dec 2001
Last week the Financial Times described EXILE
More reviews and comments in the press this week:
'A sumptuous memoir of that summer' - The Observer, 2 December 2001.
'A wonderful, sumptuous book' - Libby Purves, on Midweek (BBC Radio 4), 28 November.
'An absolutely beautiful book' - Ed Victor, leading literary agent, on Midweek (BBC Radio 4), 28 November.
'A magnificent book' - Johnnie Walker (BBC Radio 2), 27 November.
'On 250 large-format, beautifully laid out and expensively printed pages the atmosphere is captured in which the sessions for the most explosive and feverish of all albums took place... A pleasure.' Rolling Stone (Germany), December 2001.
'The story might never have been fully chronicled but for Dominique Tarlé, a young freelance photographer who had attached himself to the band before their emigration and was accepted as one of their inner circle. Between 1971 and '72, Tarlé spent several months living with Richards, snapping him and the other Stones and their women and followers. Penniless and obscure, Tarlé did not sell any of his exclusive shots at the time. Only now are they seeing the light in a book, Exile. They give a fascinating insight into how healthy and almost wholesome the Dracula of rock learnt to be.' - Sunday Times Magazine, 2 December 2001.
There was also a 6-page interview feature in Kultur Spiegel, the monthly supplement to Germany's leading magazine Der Spiegel, which you can read online - in German, of course.
We are further expecting the book to be reviewed in the Independent on Sunday, on 9 December, and in Time Out magazine (London edition) on 5 December, and a major feature in the January issue of Mojo magazine is due to hit the streets next week.
