THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

A lot changes as he changes, and the changes keep coming now he has died, and writing this book I found that to properly interpret those changes the book itself needed to move through transformations.

'A handsome six footer with a warm and engaging personality, Davie Jones has all it takes to get to the show business heights including ...talent'. Or so said David Bowie at 17, in May, 1964 writing his own press biography.

Arts commentator Paul Morley, one of the team who curated the highly successful retrospective exhibition for the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, ‘David Bowie Is ...’ constructs the definitive story of Bowie that explores how he worked, played, aged, structured his ideas, invented the future and entered history as someone who could and would never be forgotten.

Morley captures the greatest moments of Bowie's career; from the recording studio with the likes of Brian Eno and Tony Visconti; to iconic live performances from the 1970s, 80s and 90s, as well as the various encounters and artistic relationships he developed with rock luminaries John Lennon, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop.

Morley discusses in detail Bowie’s much-heralded and critically-acclaimed comeback with the release of Black Star just days before his shocking death in New York.

The Age of Bowie is a startling biographical critique of David Bowie's legacy, showing how he never stayed still, even when he withdrew from the spotlight, how he always knew his own worth and released a dazzling plethora of mobile Bowies into the world with a bloody-minded determination and a voluptuous imagination to create something amazing that was not there before.

“Very disappointed”

I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband as he is a huge fan of David Bowie. Initially when he opened his present he was very pleased but once he started to read the book he was very disappointed to put it... More
