Brian Hiatt - A Portrait Of Bowie book review
Bowie remembered, by those who knew him best
It’s fair to say the majority of Bowie fans are far from ‘over’ the great man’s unexpected demise in January. Most have endeavoured to cope by embarking upon a total immersion in his work, a course which can only intensify feelings of loss. Delving deeper into Bowie’s back catalogue only ever broadens the listener’s appreciation of the breadth of his artistic achievements. So what to do? If no immediate solace can be found in his work, maybe an examination of his life will dull the unanswerable ache triggered by his departure.
