The Bowie Letters

by Dave Thompson
Publication Date: 17/11/2013
RRP  $22.01 $21.75
Since his angst ridden adolescent years through to life as a greying father of two, Gary has been writing to his idol, David Bowie. Through 30 years of one-way correspondence we look back over a time in which both men have overcome life's obstacles. From Ziggy Stardust to Glass Spiders, and from a nervous, naive teenager to unfulfilled adult, through it all Gary has shared his most intimate thoughts with his hero. Bowie's songs serve as succour, offering inspiration in his moments of bitterness, confusion, anxiety and, finally, liberation. Compulsive and captivating, 'To Major Tom' proves that we may all have to grow up but we do not have to lose our heroes.
