David Bowie Pens Book

One of Rock's more fascinating figures is preparing to releases a new book titled Bowie: Object.  Described on his web site as a book that will offer insights about Bowie through 100 items.  Not much more is known about the book, and apparently the author would prefer that even what little is known was still under wraps.  The site attributes its willingness to post anything about it to the fact that Publishers Weekly revealed that Bowie would publish it in a story last week.  According to, the book consists of photographs of the 100 objects, each annotated with Bowie's observations and thoughts about it, which are described as '...insightful, witty and personal'.  The objects and his comments about each might prove to be interesting and amusing, but don't expect them to shed too much light on the famously private artist.  Readers looking for a more detailed look at the reclusive Mr. Bowie might do better to pick-up the book Bowie by Marc Spitz.
