"Drawn from over 180 interviews with friends, rivals, lovers, and collaborators, some of whom have never before spoken about their relationship with Bowie, this oral history weaves a hypnotic spell as it unfolds the story of a remarkable rise to stardom and an unparalleled artistic path."--Provided by Publisher.
"Tracing Bowie's life from the English suburbs to London to New York to Los Angeles, Berlin, and beyond, Jones describes a man profoundly shaped by his relationship with his schizophrenic half-brother Terry; an intuitive artist who could absorb influences through intense relationships and yet drop people cold when they were no longer of use; and a social creature equally comfortable partying with John Lennon and dining with Frank Sinatra. By turns insightful and deliciously gossipy, it will transform our understanding of both artist and art."--Provided by Publisher.

It's a biography of music icon David Bowie. I wasn't sure I'd like the format, which is a series of quotes from friends and colleagues of Bowie but the editor did a great job putting it all together. I was able to breeze through this 750+ page book as if it were half the amount - it's really that good.
