Built from stories and memories shared by self-defined David Bowie fans, this

book explores how Bowie existed as a figure of renewal and redemption,

resonating in particular with those marginalized by culture and society. Sean

Redmond and Toija Cinque draw on personal interviews, memorabilia, diaries,

letters, communal gatherings and shared conversation to find out why Bowie

mattered so much to the fans that idolized him. Within the context of the

contemporary media landscape, the book also determines the nature of the

present digital conversations taking place about David Bowie, and focuses on

seven geographical and intergenerational clusters to explore site-specific fandom.

Contextualising the identification streams that have emerged around David

Bowie, the book highlights his remarkable influence.
