David Bowie In Croatian


David Bowie fans in Croatia will get the chance next month to purchase a copy of his biography “Starman”, written by Paul Trynka, in the Croatian language. Bowie’s biography has been translated into Croatian and the book is expected to hit the shelves in the middle of November.

Trynka interviewed “over 200 friends, ex-lovers and fellow musicians” for the biography which traces Bowie’s many musical shifts and performing personas. Trynka tells a tale from Bowie’s childhood as plain David Jones in post-war Brixton, to the decadent glamor of Ziggy Stardust and controversial periods in Berlin, including monumental drug taking, and, for a while, undiminished musical invention.

The book has been translated into Croatian by Mirela Priselac and Ana Badurina and is published by Menart, reports muzika.hr.
