Description:
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.
