Death of a Waugh Fan

The papers have announced today the death of singer-songwriter David Bowie (1947-2016). He was just 2 days past his 69th birthday. Bowie was unusually widely read for a popular musician, and one of his fans posted the list of his 100 favorite books from his Facebook page a few years back. Among these is Waugh’s Vile Bodies. As mentioned in a previous post, that book had inspired some of the music in Bowie’s 1973 album Alladin Sane.
