Review

`Ultimately it is Bowie that makes this an enjoyable read, his life and art speak so loudly and profoundly that if you capture just a piece, as Morley has, you have something worth reading.' * Fortitude Magazine * `Morley has not only plenty of insights into Bowie's life and work but also the kind of details that only a diligent biographer unearths' * The Times * `A discursive, free-associating ride across the life and work of the Starman Who Changed the World [...] The Age of Bowie does feel like an outpouring of the sincerest love for its subject, the fruit of an obsessive emersion of everything Bowie meant to him and us. Eschewing the conventionally dry biographical voice, Morley's expansive present-tense prose flows [...] I hold him to be one of the great pop writers. You might even call him the Bowie of rock journalism.' * The Guardian * `A huge sprawl of Bowieania that takes us from skiffle to social media' * The Herald * `Morley has a deep understanding of Bowie's music . . . this is great fun.' * The Times * `A thrilling hymn to a brilliant and beloved "song and dance man". David Bowie did make a world of difference, and Paul Morley explains why.' -- Barney Hoskyns * The Observer * --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
