Zitat
Just when I thought it wasn't possible to love David Bowie any more than I do, I find it is. At my age it's very "heaven", the discovery of another chamber in my heart. Just for him. This might be embarrassing were it not for the fact that this love supreme is shared by so many.

Ein paar der Bücher habe ich im Rahmen von Duncans "Bowie Book Club" gelesen, und auf Facebook gibts auch ne Lesegruppe dafür, aber durch die konnt ich mich nie aufraffen.
Durch Duncan schon...da hat er jeden Monat ein Buch vorgegeben.
Leider war es nach nichtmal einem halben Jahr wieder vorbei, da ihm leider die Zeit fehlte.

Ich muss irgendwann mal alleine weitermachen... leider haben David und ich nicht so wirklich den gleichen Büchergeschmack. Ich mags leider eher seicht, mit spannenden Thrillern oder lustigen Frauenromanen ;)

Schnüff - der Artikel ist ja leider schon ziemlich alt, da hat er noch gelebt, seufz 😢

Aber trotzdem nett...und der Satz is gut: "When I saw him years later at an art do, I studiously ignored him because rushing up and saying, "You are life itself to me," seemed a bit inappropriate at a cocktail party while he was next to his stunning wife." 😄😄

Antwort #10
Bowies Bücher
David Bowie - ein besessener Leser

Gruß, Z

Na, der Artikel beruhigt mich etwas - wenn er Autoren wie Stephen King aus der Liste weggelassen hat um sich anspruchsvoller darzustellen , dann hat er zum Teil ja vielleicht auch zusätzlich Bücher gelesen, die mehr meinem Geschmack entsprechen würden ;) (obwohl ich King schon lang nicht mehr gelesen habe)


Und: "Was bei David Bowie am häufigsten übersehen wird, ist sein Humor."

Öhm, nö. Kann ich nicht behaupten. Ich liiiiiebe seinen Humor ❤
