Review

"The definitive book on Bowie" (The Times)

"Dylan Jones made absolutely the right decision to frame his superb life of David Bowie as a multi-voiced oral biography. David Bowie: A Life suits the shape-shifting, beguiling, enigmatic complexities of its subject perfectly. It’s hard to imagine
anything that will do Bowie better justice" (William Boyd Guardian)

"Jones constructs an oral-history mosaic that will engage even those whose lives
were not changed by the appearance of Ziggy Stardust on Top of the Pops in 1972" (Guardian, BOOKS OF THE YEAR)

"The best book on David Bowie you’ll ever need or read." (Irish Independent, BOOKS OF THE YEAR)

"Worthy of the Starman … Of all the volumes to appear since Bowie’s death, this is the most useful: an oral history that brings together the most incisive reminiscences and memorials" (Evening Standard)
