'The most complete and compelling portrait of Bowie's life ever assembled'
Has there ever been a more charismatic and intriguing rock star than David Bowie? In Starman, Paul Trynka has painted the definitive portrait of a great artist. From Bowie's early years in post-war, bombed-out Brixton to the decadent glamour of Ziggy Stardust to the controversial but vital Berlin period, this essential biography is a celebration of Bowie's brilliance and a timely reminder of how great music is made.
'A ripping read ... authoritatively written with wit, verve and an obvious love of his subject matter, there are enough new facts and anecdotes to excite even the most obsessive Bowie fan ... if you've read every previous Bowie biography Starman is still more than worth investigating, and if you've never read anything it's the perfect place to start'
'The diamond dog's bollocks ... boasting countless new interviews with key players, ...the first Bowie book ... [to] get as close as possible to the essence of the man ... an exhilarating read' *****
