BOWIE The Biography

by | Read by Simon Vance

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Not the first bio about enigmatic rock superstar David Bowie, this book--exhaustive in its research--gives us what may be the most complete picture so far of the artist. Simon Vance's stately British voice keeps pace with the narrative while rendering a vision of an artist who, despite his transatlantic success, is quintessentially British.The author traces Bowie's life from his background and early career as a fledgling pop star in England through the tumultuous mid-seventies when he was at his artistic zenith and most fragile state of mind. Vance achieves what few narrators do, and that is to evoke the actual mannerisms of his subject. Backed up by hundreds of interviews with those who were actually there, this bio resonates with journalistic integrity, enhanced by Vance's serious tone.
