David Bowie: Living on the Brink

By George Tremlett

Published Jan 2010

No Rock musician knows better than David Bowie how to mould an image, but what lies behind it? What does Bowie believe and where did he come from? Are his chameleon-like changes of personality a reflection of the inner man or is he cleverly concealing his real self?

This book is both a biography and also a study of the way reputations are made and fortunes created within the Rock music business. George Tremlett tells it with a droll sense of the absurdity that lies beneath its imagery.
