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 Keith Waterhouse's Billy Liar - the story of a dreamer in Northern England who just can't keep his stories straight.
Follow us! (Not in a creepy way)
Stuff we Mentioned
Billy Elliot (this isn't what we read)
Julie Mustard of London - (ok, really Julie Christie)
Gwendolyn Watts who takes a star turn as Rita in the film.
Saturday Night and Sunday Morning also by Alan Sillitoe
What's Up Next
Our mid-June episode will catch up on the chatter around Duncan's pick for the month - The Age of American Unreason, which we'll actually get around to reading when our Bibliomatic Ritual deigns it so. There'll be some other bits and bobs and our general nonsense in there too.
Then we'll be reading and chatting about the next book on our list - the Gnostic Gospels by Elaine Pagels later in the month. Maybe we'll take up smoking clove cigarettes again for the full throwback undergrad experience again.
