David Bowie’s Must-Read Books

Ever wanted to read like Bowie? As a new version of the exhibition David Bowie Is opens this week in Ontario, curators have revealed a list of his top 100 must-read books.

What immediately becomes clear is that David Bowie is a megastar with impeccable taste. Two Souvenir Press titles make the list – John Rechy’s seminal gay novel City of Night, published as part of our Independent Voices series, and Charlie Gillett’s The Sound of the City, recently republished as an ebook, which documents the rise of rock ‘n’ roll.

You can read the full list of David Bowie’s 100 must-read books here, but in the meantime, why not check out City of Night and The Sound of the City on the Souvenir Press website? (And here’s a tip – The Sound of the City is a bargain, at only £2.99 in ebook!)
