Details


Bowie a Strange Fascination by David Buckley
David Bowie was arguably the most influential artist of his time, reinventing himself again
and again, transforming music, style and art for over five decades.

David Buckley's unique approach to unravelling the Bowie enigma, via interviews with many of the singer's
closest associates, biography and academic analysis, makes this unrivalled biography a classic for Bowie
fans old and new. This revised edition of Strange Fascination captures exclusive details about the tours,
the making of the albums, the arguments, the split-ups, the music and, most importantly, the man himself.
Also including exclusive photographic material, Strange Fascination is the most
complete account of David Bowie and his impact on pop culture ever written.


A Life by Dylan Jones

Drawn from a series of conversations between David Bowie and Dylan Jones across three decades, together with over 180 interviews with friends, rivals, lovers, and collaborators - some of whom have never before spoken about their relationship with Bowie - this oral history is an intimate portrait of a remarkable rise to stardom and one of the most fascinating lives of our time.

Profoundly shaped by his relationship with his schizophrenic half-brother Terry, Bowie was a man of intense relationships that often came to abrupt ends. He was a social creature, equally comfortable partying with John Lennon and dining with Frank Sinatra, and in Dylan Jones's telling - by turns insightful and salacious - we see as intimate a portrait as could possibly be drawn.

Including illuminating, never-before-seen material from Bowie himself, drawn from a series of Jones’s interviews with him across three decades, DAVID BOWIE is an epic, unforgettable cocktail-party conversation about a man whose enigmatic shapeshifting and irrepressible creativity produced one of the most sprawling, fascinating lives of our time.

Ziggyology by Simon Goddard


He came from Outer Space...

It was the greatest invention in the history of pop music – the rock god who came from the stars – which struck a young David Bowie like a lightning bolt from the heavens.

When Ziggy the glam alien messiah fell to Earth, he transformed Bowie from a prodigy to a superstar who changed the face of music forever. But who was Ziggy Stardust? And where did he really come from?

In a work of supreme pop archaeology, Simon Goddard unearths every influence that brought Ziggy to life – from HG Wells to Holst, Kabuki to Kubrick, and Elvis to Iggy. Ziggyology documents the epic drama of the Starman’s short but eventful time on Planet Earth… and why Bowie eventually had to kill him* * * * *
