Bowie’s Bookshelf by John O’Connell

In 2013, three years before David Bowie died, London’s Victoria & Albert Museum hosted an exhibition called “David Bowie Is.” As a part of the exhibition, Bowie supplied the museum with a list of 100 books that had influenced him.

In his new book, Bowie’s Bookshelf: The Hundred Books that Changed David Bowie’s Life, music journalist John O’Connell devotes an essay to each work on that list, imagining its importance in David Bowie’s life and work.

I skipped around and started off reading the essays about authors and books I love and then read the book straight through. It’s a wonderful little book and a quick read.  

Reserve a copy of Bowie’s Bookshelf in the library catalog.
