Reviews

  • 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
  • Dylan Jones has excavated the cacophony of voices that make up a life and curated a phenomenal portrait of the artist from childhood to the final days. The witnesses who comprise this oral biography animate the pages like characters in a non-fiction novel. Damn nigh peerless.

    David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas
  • Studded with shiny nuggets

    Daily Telegraph
  • The perfect present for music mums and dads

    Daily Mirror
  • Funny, enlightening, gossipy’

    The Herald
  • Sparks with admiration and grievances, lust and envy

    Sunday Telegraph
