Bowie’s Son Launches Bowie Book Club

January 3, 2018

David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones has launched a new online Bowie book club of his father’s favourite books.

Bowie’s official website released a list of the flame-haired musician’s top 100 books back in 2013. The extensive list featured classics from George Orwell, T.S. Elliot and even vintage Beano comics. Inspired by his father’s reading, Duncan Jones took to Twitter to begin a book club. Jones plucked Hawksmoor by Peter Ackroyd as the first book to begin with.




Besides being born and thumbing through his father’s dusty old book collection, Jones is known as a director, producer and screenwriter. His works include the BAFTA award winning Moon. He tweeted (below) his reasons for starting the book club.


Duncan Jones will be announcing the next book via Twitter on the 1st of February. Are you tempted to join along? If you do, we’d love to see you reading intensely like Jones.
