Review:

"One of the most authoritative Bowie books you're ever likely to read." (Mojo)

"As a critique-cum-re-establishment of the David Bowie character, "definitive" is pretty much it." (Guardian)

"A fascinating portrait of a fascinating artist ... if you like Bowie and you're into biographies, this is the one to read" (Marc Almond)

"Buckley manages the ultimate achievement of any rock biog and sends you scuttling back to the records." (Guardian)

"A definitive re-establishment of the man and the myth of David Bowie." (Future Music)

From the Publisher:

'You must think we out-of-towners are a strange and crazy bunch. Well,I guess we are. We dance a furious boredom',a young David Bowie wrote from his provincial bedroom to DJ John Peel in 1969. Five years later this driven, questing and flawed soul created his androgynous, fanatical rock star Ziggy Stardust as the ultimate revenge of the suburbs. Bowie's subsequent pioneering sexual experimentation, cracked actor showmanship and ability to embrace every musical genre from glam rock to drum'n'bass have made him into the biggest commerical success in rock history since the Beatles and The Stones. He is as much an icon in 2005 as he was during the 70's.
