Nos bastidores do Pink Floyd - Mark BlakeThe (Brazilian) Portuguese translation of the excellent "Pigs Might Fly: The Inside Story Of Pink Floyd" (known as "Comfortably Numb" in the US) by our friend Mark Blake, is published in Brazil on Monday (March 5th). The book, now titled 'Nos Bastidores Do Pink Floyd' (roughly translates as 'Backstage with Pink Floyd') is published by Generale and has been released to coincide with Roger Waters' upcoming tour dates in Argentina and Brazil.

The book - a cracking read - has been very well received by the Floyd community. Drawing on his own interviews with all of the band members, plus almost a hundred new interviews with the group's friends, road crew, producers, designers, former housemates and university colleagues, the book is from our perspective, a superb, incredibly detailed, and essential look at the band's history. Our review, and ordering information for other editions, here.

The book will be available from all good booksellers in Brazil from Monday.
