Reseña del editor:

The Sunday Times bestseller.

David Bowie was arguably the most influential artist of his time, reinventing himself again and again, transforming music, style and art for over five decades.

David Buckley's unique approach to unravelling the Bowie enigma, via interviews with many of the singer's closest associates, biography and academic analysis, makes this unrivalled biography a classic for Bowie fans old and new. With exclusive photographic material, this revised edition of Strange Fascination captures exclusive details about the tours, the making of the albums, the arguments, the split-ups, the music and, most importantly, the man himself. From his self-titled first record, through to the critically-acclaimed Blackstar released just two days before his death, Strange Fascination is the most complete account of David Bowie and his impact on pop culture ever written.
