David Bowie Was a Reader

Rocker’s Favorite Books


David Bowie, who died this week at age 69, was not just a rock star. He is widely considered to be a cultural icon, a man who changed music, movies and more. He was also an avid reader. In 2013 he posted his top 100 books on Facebook. His reading was as wide ranging and eclectic as the man himself and encompasses the written word from Homer and Vladimir Nabokov to Gustave Flaubert and Junta Diaz.
