Product description


I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It truly is a remarkable piece of work and Tony must be congratulated for his commitment and dedication. After reading this book- which is just as much a piece of art as Marc s works themselves - I came away feeling that I know more about Marc than I did previously. It is always a thrill for me to discover new things about Marc, especially Marc the man as opposed to Marc the Superstar and this book surely does that. It shows convincingly that he was aware of political struggles ( Sun Seals & Moon Eels ), popular science fiction ( Blue Seeker ), Alexander The Great ( Python ) and much, much more. It is absolutely fascinating to read, to inwardly digest and to understand the intricacies of Marc s mind. No one before has ever come close to achieving what Tony Stringfellow has managed to do with this book. Buy it, read it, enjoy it, absorb its content and then re-read it all over again. You won t be sorry, I wasn t. I just hope that Tony decides to tackle some of Marc s lyrics next- and there is always Warlock Of Love to get his teeth into! How about it Tony???? Barry Smith © 2005. --The Official Marc Bolan Fan Club

The Wizard's Gown - Rewoven - Beneath the glitter of Marc Bolan by Tony Stringfellow The man behind the glitter, the art behind the artist... A beautiful masterpiece by someone who truly understands Marc Bolan's work. The 'Wizard's Gown' is a journey into the inner corners of Bolan's talented imagination. It's just a foot in the door into a mind that has definitely been under-rated. In this book Tony Stringfellow dissects Marc Bolan's poetry, letting us into the secrets behind the metaphors that have been before misconstrued as simple random images. We also discover a man that was a sponge accumulating knowledge. Someone who had something to say about politics, world history and had a deep understanding of world mythology - a self educated "street punk from Hackney". We are also let in the personal life of one of the most legendary artists, and learn about his personal relationships with other legends of his time, as well as his love for anything artistic. We see a man that was born to rock, a poet that was born for fame. What this work also does is set Marc Bolan as a literary man, that should be regarded amongst the great British writers and rock legends. A man who's literary work should be studied at school along side writers like Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Tennessee Williams... On the other hand it proves that Tony Sringfellow is an artist that deserves the respect of a scholar. --Exposed East Literature
