It’s a long-standing tradition for U2 fans to get to the point where their passion for the band, its music, and its influence in their private and public lives prompts them to take pen to paper to tell others about it. I love that there’s this growing library of first-person stories coming out of U2 Fandom. Now Angela Barresi, a staff writer for Italy’s U2 360 Gradi, has added her book to the shelf.
All I Want Is You is a self-published collection of about a year’s worth of her charming short columns and personal reflections, illustrated with her own drawings. Elisa Agostini wrote the English translation, which, due to some of the roughness of the translation, made me wish I could read Italian. I’m sure it’s an even better experience to read Barresi in her own language.
Barresi kindly sent me two copies of the book in English and asked if I’d make one available to a fan, which I’m happy to do. So, first come, first served. Contact me if you’d like to receive a free copy of her book.
