No he isn't actually. The image above is a detail from one of the Bowie related publications mentioned in the 'Icon To Icon' article from The Independent. The book by Harland Miller brilliantly entitled 'Slow Down Arthur, Stick To Thirty' and published by 4thEstate should be in the shops (over here in the UK at least) now.
The title is cribbed from some dialogue between T J Newton and his driver in 'The Man Who Fell To Earth', and though I haven't had the chance to read it yet myself, this is what singer of Pulp and Bowie fan, Jarvis Cocker, had to say about it: 'Right up my strasse: thoroughly inappropriate behaviour in an urban setting. The shittier the circumstances, the bigger the dream. Smashing.'
