Abstract:
"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.
