'Through interviews with friends and colleagues, as well as detailed research, the writer has gained unprecedented knowledge of the true story behind the legend. This is a fascinating insight into one of the greatest artists of our lifetime.' Evening Standard 'Through several interviews with Bowie she evocatively portrays his fascinating life, often with a tenderness you wouldn't expect.' Daily Express 'An intriguing book. This is a personal friendship in writing. The knowledge divulged here is an endearing and powerful tale of a man who conquered the entire entertainment industry with his creative force.' Variety A unique portrait of the globally revered artist and the extraordinary, complex man behind the legend. His music thrilled the generation it was written for, and has entertained and inspired every generation since. HERO: DAVID BOWIE is an intelligent exploration of the man behind the myths and the makeup told from the very beginning. Respected music journalist and biographer Lesley-Ann Jones knew David Jones from the days before fame, when he was a young musician starting out, frustrated by an industry that wouldn't give him a break and determined to succeed. Here she traces the epic journey of the boy from Bromley born into a troubled background to his place as one of the greatest stars in rock history. Jones has interviewed numerous friends and associates of Bowie, many of whom have never spoken publicly about him before. Drawing on this new material and meticulous research, the real story of Bowie's family background is told; the true inspiration behind the creation of Ziggy Stardust is revealed, and we learn how his marriage to Angie ended in agony following his comeback from a near fatal drug addiction. Jones also revisits Bowie's tragic relationship with his brother and his deep bond with T Rex frontman Marc Bolan. Bowie's rebellious nature, his many sources of inspiration and creativity, and his complex, intense personality are discussed here, creating a unique and compelling portrait of an extraordinary man. This is Bowie as you've never seen him before.

'Scottish crime-writing at its finest, with a healthy dose of plot twists and turns, bodies and plenty of brutality' Sun The gritty new mystery in Quintin Jardine's bestselling Bob Skinner series, set in Edinburgh and the Scottish countryside; not to be missed by readers of Ian Rankin and Peter May.

Eurovision - a harsh, unforgiving environment where only the strongest survive; where farce and fiasco are just a short step from the enticing path to fame and fortune; and where the legendary Sigfrid 'Siggi' Stormisson stalks the tangled undergrowth as the undisputed apex predator... This is a man who's taken part in the contest five times, written the winning song three times and composed a total of thirty-two entries for thirty-three different countries - a feat still unexplained from a mathematical perspective. But when accused of cheating his way to his most recent victory, Siggi finds himself hit with a humiliating life ban. Yet this only fires his determination to find a way of winning the next contest. The problem is, ghosts from his colourful and controversial fifty-year career are equally hell-bent on torpedoing his duplicitous scheme. Can Siggi do it? Will his enemies stop him? And why on earth are bubbles so important? Not so much a whodunnit as a who'll-win-it, 'A Man Called Eurovision' delivers all the answers.

Is there a hole in your life? Is it shaped like the Eurovision Song Contest? Or is Eurovision already the highlight of your year - like Christmas but without the unwelcome visitors? Whether you're a Eurovision veteran or virgin, this book explains how to maximise the sheer magnificence of this unique event, explores the trials of being a fan and relives some key contests from the past: when ABBA won, when the UK plunged into the 'nul points' abyss, when a German lady pretended to be a jukebox, when much-mocked Norway finally came good and many more. From Frizzle Sizzle to Fud Leclerc, it's a fan's-eye view of the great, the good, the bad and the Swiss. Part celebration, part confession, part survival toolkit, 'Eurovision: A Funny Kind of Euphoria' puts every key aspect of Eurovision firmly in the spotlight: the triumphs, the traumas, the travesties - and, of course, the hats.

Music is a fickle mistress. Especially when you're useless at it. But as this music memoir shows, it can lure you into some comic places. In 'Big Dreams, Bum Notes: How Music Led Me to Eurovision Oblivion', Garry Holland recounts a tale of bumbling incompetence dating back to the 1970s - from garage band metal-punk beginnings, through the bewildering world of folk music, to two failed bids for Eurovision glory and one small claim to fame: an adult life spent being the guy who got beaten by the guy behind 'Blame it on the Boogie'. The moral is very simple: a futile desire to emulate ABBA, Bucks Fizz, Brotherhood of Man and Teddy Scholten may result in a life less glamorous than theirs, but it can be an awful lot funnier.
