David Bowie Is – Brooklyn Museum ShopBowie never settled for one idea when he could have three. Bowie was a famously insatiable reader. As a teenager in Bromley he was schooled in the Beats by his older brother Terry. Cocaine-crazed in s America, he would stay up all night inhaling books about the occult from his 1,volume portable library. Feeling from an early age formless and incomplete, he rebuilt himself from pieces of the things he loved: not just literature and music but cinema, art, people, places. While the similarly well-read Bob Dylan preferred to veil his sources, Bowie made an exhibition of them — literally so at his touring museum show David Bowie Is , where some of his favourite books dangled from the ceiling like mobiles.
