BOWIE''S BOOKS - THE HUNDRED LITERARY HEROES WHO CHANGED HIS LIFE

À propos

'Brilliant. The unwritten Bowie book that needed writing' CAITLIN MORAN 'What is your idea of perfect happiness?' 'Reading.' 'What is the quality you most like in a man?' 'The ability to return books.' Three years before he died, David Bowie made a list of the one hundred books that had transformed his life - a list that formed something akin to an autobiography. From Madame Bovary to A Clockwork Orange , the Iliad to the Beano , these were the publications that had fuelled his creativity and shaped who he was.

In Bowie's Books , John O'Connell explores this list in the form of one hundred short essays, each offering a perspective on the man, performer and creator that is Bowie, his work as an artist and the era that he lived in.

Bowie's Books is much more than a list of books you should read in your lifetime: it is a unique insight into one of the greatest minds of our times, and an indispensable part of the legacy that Bowie left behind.
