Summary In 1976, David Bowie left Los Angeles and the success of his celebrated albums Diamond Dogs and Young Americans for Europe. The rocker settled in Berlin, where he would make his "Berlin Trilogy" - the albums Low, Heroes, and Lodger, which are now considered some of the most critically acclaimed and innovative of the late twentieth century. But Bowieʹs time in Berlin was about more than producing new music. As Tobias Ruther describes in this fascinating tale of Bowieʹs Berlin years, the musician traveled to West Berlin - the capital of his childhood dreams and the city of Expressionism - to repair his body and mind from the devastation of drug addiction, delusions, and mania. -- Publisher description.
