Three years before he died, David Bowie made a list of the one hundred books that had transformed his life – a list that formed something akin to an autobiography. From Madame Bovary to A Clockwork Orange, the Iliad to the Beano, these were the publications that had fuelled his creativity and shaped who he was.

In Bowie's Books, John O'Connell explores this list in the form of one hundred short essays, each offering a perspective on the man, performer and creator that was Bowie, his work as an artist and the era in which he lived. As part of our ongoing series in partnership with the Bloomsbury Institute, O’Connell joins us to discuss this unique insight into one of the greatest minds of our time.

John O’Connell is a former Senior Editor at Time Out and music columnist for The Face, he is now freelance, writing mainly for The Times and the Guardian. He interviewed David Bowie in New York in 2002.
