Dazzlingly pulls together all the vibrant strands that made up the star-spun cloth of Ziggy. Goddard is the aficionado.
Does for David Bowie what Greil Marcus's Lipstick Traces did for the Sex Pistols... Big, bold and refreshingly original... It's Ziggy as experienced from the alien inside

A tremendous account

If you’ve been enjoying David Bowie’s comeback, you’ll relish Simon Goddard’s offbeat paean of man-love to his earlier incarnation. Goddard offers a thrillingly unusual slant on how Ziggy Stardust…came into being
A great deal of research has gone into Ziggyology… Ziggy becomes a forcefield of fabulation, an imaginative cartography through and to whom all manner of ley lines pass…ingeniously and entertainingly (rendered)
I heartily recommend Ziggyology, not just to those fans of Bowie and Ziggy, but to anyone with an interest in the popular culture of the last hundred years or so, to anyone with a passing interest in the world around us, and all beautifully written by a fine writer who displays a great gift of passing on his enthusiasm to the reader.
