David Bowie’s Books – from the Guardian

If you fancy having a look at David Bowie’s list of 100 must read books, you can see it here.

I’ve only read two from the entire list: Muriel Spark’s Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four – and those were both read for school work, many moons ago. I bet everyone else has done better – do tell.

  1. Like you, I have only read two of them: In Cold Blood, Truman Capote (1965) and George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. Interesting list, though.

  2. I haven’t heard of a lot of them!

    I haven’t read Nineteen Eighty-Four, but I’ve read four of the other books – Hawksmoor by Peter Ackroyd (v good), White Noise by DeLillo (not so good), The Gnostic Gospels by Elaine Pagels (v good if you’re interested in the history of Christianity)& The Prime of Miss JB (excellent).
