R.E.M., the most acclaimed American group of their generation, disbanded in September 2011 with their idealism and dignity intact. In this, the final edition of his best-selling R.E.M. biography, Tony Fletcher brings their story to a conclusion and explains what led this unique group to draw a curtain on their career. This Omnibus Enhanced digital edition of Perfect Circle includes a bonus multimedia discography charting every album and single of R.E.M’s career, presented in chronological order through audio, video and imagery. Drawing on interviews with band members, friends, associates and business partners, the book follows R.E.M.’s upward trajectory from the seminal debut Murmur in 1983 to the 1990s when their albums Out Of Time, Automatic For The People and Monster sold tens of millions, making them one of the world’s biggest groups, to their final years together. Granted access to the group throughout their career, Tony Fletcher delves beyond R.E.M.s renowned humility and social awareness, discussing fame, fortune and sexuality with the same keen eye he casts on the group’s astonishing career and musical catalogue. The result is neither blind fan worship nor jaundiced critical cynicism, but a balanced and thorough telling of one of the most compelling rock stories of our time.

Discussing fame, fortune and sexuality with the same keen eye he casts on the group's astonishing musical catalogue, Perfect Circle is neither blind fan worship nor jaundiced critical cynicism, but a balanced and thorough telling of one of the most compelling rock stories of our time. Drawing on dozens of interviews with friends, associates and the band members themselves, this is not just the story of one group's rise through cult status, but the story of American rock.Tony Fletcher's biography of the enigmatic quartet from Athens, Georgia, benefits not only from Tony's long association with the band but also by the co-operation of the band itself. However, R.E.M. - being R.E.M. - were disinclined to reveal this at the time the book was first published in 1989 and Tony was thus obliged to keep this under his hat. All such restrictions have since been lifted for newer editions, of which there have been several, and this latest incarnation of the book - now retitled Perfect Circle - brings the story to its natural conclusion with R.E.M.'s decision to disband in September, 2011.
