Duncan Jones, o filho de David Bowie, acaba de criar um clube do livro através de seu Twitter.

Intitulado David Bowie Book Club, o projeto terá como objetivo discutir as obras favoritas do lendário cantor. O clube começará por Hawksmoor, premiado livro de 1985 escrito por Peter Aykroyd. Hawksmoor esteve presente na lista dos 100 livros favoritos de Bowie, lançada oficialmente em 2013.

A obra se passa em Londres e segue as histórias paralelas de Nicholas Dyer, que constrói igrejas nas quais realiza sacrifícios humanos durante o século 18, e Nicholas Hawksmoor, um detetive dos anos 1980 que investiga assassinatos cometidos nas mesmas igrejas.

De acordo com Jones, os fãs que quiserem se juntar ao clube e discutir o livro com ele tem até o dia 1 de Fevereiro para lê-lo. Você pode conferir mais informações sobre a concepção da ideia logo abaixo.

DUNCAN LAUNCHES BOWIE BOOK CLUB VIA TWITTER “Screaming above Central London…” Back in October 2013 we exclusively posted the complete list of “DAVID BOWIE'S TOP 100 BOOKS”. (http://smarturl.it/BowieBooksFull100) In case you’ve not already seen it on Twitter, Duncan Jones has now kicked off what we’re calling the Bowie Book Club. Here’s what he said about the idea and his first selection. + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + Duncan Jones @ManMadeMoon Dec 27 My dad was a beast of a reader. One of his true loves was Peter Ackroyd’s sojourns into the history of Britain & its cities. I’ve been feeling a building sense of duty to go on the same literary marathon in tribute to dad. Time allowing… #Read-ItBig’nsTheBrain Duncan Jones @ManMadeMoon Dec 27 Alright gang! Anyone who wants to join along, we are reading Peter Ackroyd’s “Hawksmoor,” as an amuse cerveau before we get into the heavy stuff.

It’s also a work we’ve loved for a long time here at DBHQ, since David first recommended it many years ago.
