Book by book, year by year, the ultimate literary trip through Bowie’s greatest decade.

This special edition is limited to just 500 copies. It is the fifth in a series of Bowie Odyssey collector's editions. It is the only way to acquire the book in hardback and it features a special alternative cover.

Darkness looms in 1974. It could be the winter energy crisis. It could be The Exorcist. Or it could be the shock that Britain’s biggest pop star, David Bowie, is about to leave its shores for good.

Bidding the corpse of glam, Ziggy’s haircut and loyal ‘Bowietania’ farewell, the plan is to storm America with his highly theatrical Diamond Dogs tour. But by opening night he’s already wishing he was Barry White instead. Then there’s that nasty sniff he can’t get rid of. And that fly in his milk. And the suspicion that, much like every other teen idol named David, fame is driving him completely out of his mind …

Simon Goddard’s electric ride through Bowie’s greatest decade reaches the halfway mark with this fifth instalment. Wickedly funny and shockingly tragic, Bowie Odyssey 74 is the story of one man trying to find his soul in a world that’s gone to the devil.

'Funny, poignant, intriguing, full of mischief, a brilliant piece of work. It might be my favourite Bowie book ever.' Marc Riley, BBC 6 Music

'The latest instalment in Simon Goddard's scintillating series of yearly David Bowie check-ins finds its subject at a crossroads... Goddard's exquisite writing style elevates his story. Bowie Odyssey 74 is an integral addition to the story so far' Classic Pop, 4.5*

'With every volume the Bowie Odyssey has been praised for its innovative storytelling' Blitzed

'Another year, another triumph for the author's vivid, provocative meditation on Bowie's '70s. Almost hallucinatory in the telling, this book, like its predecessors, is unputdownable.' MOJO, 4****
