British writer Greg Lansdowne has written a new book called Living a Fan’s Adventure Tale: a-ha in the Eyes of the Beholders, which aims to describe how a-ha’s music has made an impact on fans around the world.
Here’s a quote from the book description provided by the publisher:
“Fans from around 50 different countries have been willing to share their wide and varied memories of following the band for this book, in a celebration of what has made a-ha so popular across the globe for three decades. With other contributions from musical collaborators and journalists who have interviewed the band, and academics in fandom, this is a thorough study into the career of the three Norwegians, lavishly illustrated throughout with fans snapshots and personal photos of the band. Living A Fan’s Adventure Tale gets to the heart of what it really means to be a fan and is a must-read for all devotees as it puts into words why a-ha endures in the minds of millions of people.”
More details about Living a Fan’s Adventure Tale and the process of writing the book can be found in an article written by Lansdowne on a-ha.com.
According to Lansdowne, a-ha collaborators such as Leif Johansen, Ian Wherry, Jørun Bøgeberg, Per Lindvall and Frode Unneland have all contributed to the book.
