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 have a special guest - musician and author extraordinaire Franz Nicolay, who's got a musical rap sheet as long as your arm and a fantastic new book about touring in Eastern Europe that you should get your eyes and mind around now. He's helping us delve the depths of a middle-aged male psyche of the mid-sixties in Saul Bellow's Herzog - what great insights and baseless nattering will we indulge in this time?

Maldoror by Comte de Lautréamont
"Les Chants de Maldoror is based on a character called Maldoror, a figure of unrelenting evil who has forsaken God and mankind. The book combines a violent narrative with vivid and often surrealistic imagery."
