DB_ 504478938I recently came across David Bowie’s Top 100 Must Read Books. I am so impressed a.) that he had a top 100 list that he actually took the time to write down, and b.) that he had such a variety of reading interests! The full list can be found on the website of Open Book Toronto, but a few of my favs on his list are as follows:

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Junot Diaz, 2007

The Trial of Henry Kissinger, Christopher Hitchens, 2001

-> to be fair, I haven’t read this, but if David Bowie has then I feel it must be compelling 

Kafka Was The Rage: A Greenwich Village Memoir, Anatole Broyard, 1993

In Between the Sheets, Ian McEwan, 1978

Before the Deluge: A Portrait of Berlin in the 1920s, Otto Friedrich, 1972

On The Road, Jack Kerouac, 1957

Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell, 1948

Transcendental Magic, Its Doctrine and Ritual, Eliphas Lévi, 1896

Inferno, from the Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri, about 1308-1321

The Iliad, Homer, about 800 BC

RIP David Bowie. I had no idea we shared this love until his passing, but I look forward to reading some of his favorite books with him in  mind.
