Random House, Inc.
The massive, world-wide outpouring of grief at the death of David Bowie notably focused on not only his stunning musical output, but also his fascinating refusal to stay the same—the same as other trending artists, or even the same as himself.
 
In this remarkable collection, Bowie reveals the fierce intellectualism, artistry, and humor behind it all. From his very first interview—as a teenager on the BBC, before he was even a musician—to his last, Bowie takes on the most probing questions, candidly discussing his sexuality, his drug usage, his sense of fashion, how he composed, and more.
 
For fans still mourning his passing, as well as for those who know little about him, it's a revealing, interesting, and inspiring look at one of the most influential artists of the last fifty years.

Baker & Taylor
"In these interviews collected throughout his fabled career--including his first, when he was sixteen, as well as his last, decades later--David Bowie discusses his childhood in the rough streets of South London, songwriting, his problems with drug abuse, the influence of Andy Warhol, sexuality, his movies, fashion, working with Brian Eno, his friendship with John Lennon, and more. Ever articulate, with a wicked wit always at hand, Bowie shows here why he was always considered ahead of his time--both in art making and cultural commentary"--Back cover.
