David Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones, has launched a book club in his dad’s honour.


In 2013, Bowie’s website published a list of his top 100 favourite books. The book club will go through the entire list of the late rocker’s favourites, beginning with Peter Ackroyd’s 1985 mystery novel, Hawksmoor.


Book club members have until February 1st to finish the book. According to Jones, his dad was a “beast of a reader“. And it shows – some of the books in the list include The Stranger by Albert Camus, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, George Orwell’s 1984, Michael Chabon’s Wonder Boys, and The Leopard by Giusseppe Di Lampedusa.
