This is a good read, thanks for posting.
Not read all of it yet, it's a monster.
Interesting to read about Heinlein's "Stranger in a strange land" as a key text for Bowie. I've not read it but the last time I saw it mentioned was in this book about Charles Manson, he was a big fan, it was a Bible of sorts for him. But didn't realise it was thought to be a Crowley/Thelema bio in disguise.
It also mentions an ithell colquhoun book ive not heard of. Very interested in that artist.
Had no idea that a lot of Bowies lyrics are cut ups.
