Today in Duran History – Talking to Girls about Duran Duran

On today’s date in 2010, Talking to Girls about Duran Duran – a book written by Rob Sheffield was published.  Have you read it?  We featured a set of blog posts on the book as well.  Check them out!

The book itself is interesting, although the book not directly about Duran Duran as one might think.  Sheffield takes the time to express his feelings about the band in his introduction, but the band does not take center stage throughout the book as much as it’s about using music as a sort of common ground for getting through those tough teen years. Sheffield includes many an anecdote from his personal life to tell this autobiographical tale. It’s worth reading if you’re like me and looking for some books to enjoy over the summer!
