From the Publisher"This work stands out in its ability to not only explore the roots of Bowie's star image but also to recognise them throughout his career. Stevenson treats Bowie's career as a totality, as a spectrum rather than distinct periods or disparate images or transofrmations. This is what sets this work apart, and what marks Stevenson's book as worthy of serious consideration"
"Nick Stevenson paints a fascinating portrait of David Bowie. We see Bowie change with his times, we see him refracted through social, and we see him reflected in the fantasies of his fans. This is a thought-provoking study of one of pop's most intriguing icons."
John Street, University of East Anglia
"At last, an intelligent book about David Bowie which elucidates his exotic appeal and pays tribute to his long standing capacity to be one step ahead of the pack in “reading” popular culture. This is a notable contribution to the growing literature on celebrity culture."
Chris Rojek, Nottingham Trent University
