    I am a huge fan of the novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis I thought the film was a disappointment and I blame the director Nicolas Roeg for not capturing the tragedy of Thomas Jerome Newton as well as the book I did love the performances particularly Bowie's and Candy Clark's and of course it is an interesting and memorable film The hundreds of photos in this book are magical and out of this world If you loved the film The Man Who Fell to Earth or just love Bowie this picture book of the making of the film is a must have on your shelf

    45 starsI received this small sized coffee table Taschen book as a gift from a fellow Bowie lover I love David Bowie I’m not going to wax nostalgic because I’ll be going for hoursThis beautiful book is full of photographs mostly but not exclusively black and white of Bowie on the set of his 1976 sci fi movie The Man Who Fell To Earth The book is great but I would’ve enjoyed context with the photos Some shots are of the amazing thin white duke in various off camera photos around the New Mexico localeA strange cult classic and it would take a publisher like Taschen to do it justiceBowie rules Know that

    Though the text offers a good overview of the film's production the real appeal here are the many photographs taken on set by David James
