Modern tarihin en ünlü yaratıcı simgelerinden biriydi David Bowie. Onu kaybettiğimiz bu günde Bowie’nin herkesin okumasını düşündüğü listesini yayınlıyoruz. Kitapların birkaçı hariç hepsi Bowie’nin ömrü içinde yayınlanmış. Politikadan görsel sanatlara kadar farklı disiplinlere dair kitaplardan oluşmuş çok zengin bir liste bu. Henüz çevirisi yayımlanmamış her bir kitap umarız Türkçe’de de yerini alır.
