The Pages Behind the Artists: Billy Liar (Bowie 2 of 100) 

Waterhouse, Keith. Billy Liar. London: Michael Joseph. 1959

 

Billy Liar is a nonsensical slice of life demonstrating the indecision surrounding the expectations and responsibilities encountered by the youth of the lower middles class. It lays open the bleak hopelessness of lateral movement and the tedious repetition of cultural and political history.

I do not know at what part in Bowie's life he encountered this book, but I cant help but wonder if, as a youth and then as an advertising agent, this book…

The Pages Behind the Artists: The Brutality of Fact (Bowie 1 of 100) 

Sylvester, David. The Brutality of Fact: Interviews With francis bacon. London: Thames & Hudson. 1987

 

A collection of 9 interviews compiled from tapes, videos, and transcripts covering a span of 24 years (1962 - 1986). Topics include methods and styles, but also the value, role and importance of the artist. While doing basic research on the book, I found two interviews of David Bowie dating from the early 90's, when he was more involved with the art world than the music world.

So, while building those connections, and finding performance venues and new inspiration, I will be looking at the…

Page vs Screen: oh, the suspense...... 

This is the start of a new project/series. It has been in the back of my mind for years, maybe decades, and it is time.

Premise: I find literature to be so much "more" than it's cinematic counterparts, and for my personal taste, Alfred Hitchcock has the been the director that has provided the most striking resemblance to that "more." My preferences lean towards mystery and suspense, but not horror. I have other examples that I will get to, such as Val Lewton's Cat People (1942), The Uninvited (1944), and …
