    I follow Duncan Jones on Twitter. His dad was a voracious reader so he’s set up a Twitter book club in his honour, reading books David enjoyed. Hawksmoor by Peter Ackroyd this month.
    David Bowie really was a multi-talented man. And produced a terribly nice son.

      That’s very interesting. I didn’t know that and now I am off to twitter-stalk Duncan Jones.

          He IS. And made a very good movie called Moon with Sam Rockwell, now I think of it.

      I don’t get all the fuss about hawksmoor. I’ve only ever abandoned around 10 books in my life – and that was one. so boring.

      and I love bowie. but his art is a bit… that one looks like one of those caricatures you get done for €10 on the street in nasty tourist resorts.

        I haven’t tried it. I’ve never read any Ackroyd, now that I’ve looked him up.

          If you’re looking for a truly awful book then do try A Disaffection by James Kelmer.

          I can say from experience that it bounces off the wall in a very satisfactory manner.

            He wrote something else that was dreadful. It won an award. Was it written in Scottish dialect? Ow, my brain hurts.
            I looked it up. How Late It Was, How Late. Brutal.

            I just finished Philip Pullman’s latest, La Belle Sauvage, and it was superb, and someone gave me the Twin Peaks book, The Final Dossier and that was a lot of fun.

          3. mildred st. meadowlark

            La Belle Sauvage is everything I hoped it would be and then some. I hadn’t read it til now out of fear that it wouldn’t live up to HDM.

            I feel silly for doubting Pullman’s genius now.

            the entire chronicles of thomas covenant. 12 trudgingly slow books and he nicks the ending from the matrix.

          5. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

            I was too tight to buy that before Christmas, Nige, but am looking forward to it. I loved the trilogy.

          6. Nigel

            Tell you what, he’s at the absolute top of his game here as a writer. Crafts his prose like a master, builds his story with a slow steady confidence, evokes his characters with depth and precision, slips into the increasing strangeness of his world as the flood rises, and it all goes down effortlessly. I was awestruck, frankly.

          7. mildred st. meadowlark

            Yes yes and yes.

            And if you haven’t read his Sally Lockhart series, I strongly recommend them as a great old-fashioned Victorian mystery.

          8. Nigel

            +1 on the Sally Lockhart books, and there are two little books that came out since the trilogy, short stories really, set in the Northern Lights world that are worth a read.

      2. The Ghost of Starina

        Catcher In the Rye is the wall-bouncer for me. Everything was so emotionless. Like a Brett Easton Ellis of his time.

      1. mildred st. meadowlark

        THATs his name! That came up over Trivial Pursuit this Christmas and no one could think of it (and there was a ban on using phones to find the answer as we’re an awful competitive bunch)

    I adore Bowie but when I saw the pic first I assumed this thread was about bad fan art.
