Promotional Information

Provides a window into a moment when both phantasmatic and real relationships between straightness and queerness, between blackness and whiteness, and between utopia and dystopia, were in flux; Bowie in the mid-1970s both exemplified and had a hand in creating the complex and contradictory opening of possibilities now seen as the hallmark of that decade.

Reviews

[Hendler's] textual analysis of Bowie's lyrics and the influences of the album is deep, yet he doesn't skimp on musicology ... This 33 1/3 is worth reading even if you know nothing about Diamond Dogs. * Bomb *
This latest volume of Bloomsbury's 33 1/3 series sees US academic Glenn Hendler manfully take a crack at forensically unpacking the disparate ingredients of Bowie's greatest future dystopia Diamond Dogs and passing with flying colours. * Shindig! Magazine *
