Welcome to another episode of the Bowie Book Club, where wild speculation and grasping for straws about Bowie’s favorite books has reigned supreme since 2016. This time we read Madame Bovary a groundbreaking (and salacious, we guess?) novel of one woman's struggle against bourgie norms. And Greg really apologizes about his Vitamin Flintheart impersonation.
Follow us! (Not in a creepy way)
Stuff we Mentioned
a scathing New York Times takedown of Mme B.!
An interesting take on the obscenity trial for Madame Bovary.
The great Novel Bookstore in Memphis. "Oh yeah, I can get you some smut"
What's Up Next
Our mid-May episode will check in on Duncan's read - Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell and (if the recording gods smile on us) we'll be talking to the eminent Bowie exegetist Chris O'Leary - who's written Rebel Rebel, a great book about the first half of Bowie's discography (and another one coming soon)!
