From the Publisher"This work stands out in its ability to not only explore the rootsof Bowie's star image but also to recognise them throughout hiscareer. Stevenson treats Bowie's career as a totality, as aspectrum rather than distinct periods or disparate images ortransofrmations. This is what sets this work apart, and what marksStevenson's book as worthy of serious consideration"
"Nick Stevenson paints a fascinating portrait of David Bowie. Wesee Bowie change with his times, we see him refracted throughsocial, and we see him reflected in the fantasies of his fans. Thisis a thought-provoking study of one of pop's most intriguingicons."
John Street, University of East Anglia
"At last, an intelligent book about David Bowie which elucidateshis exotic appeal and pays tribute to his long standing capacity tobe one step ahead of the pack in “reading” popularculture. This is a notable contribution to the growing literatureon celebrity culture."
