Art Garfunkel’s Fave Books? Give Me A F***ing Break


David Bowie’s list of favorite books is one thing. The art rocker is an innovator who has, time and again during his long career, made highly influential work.

A list of Bowie’s fave books provides insight into the mind of this intriguing artist.

Certainly I’d love to see fave book lists from Dylan and Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits and the late Captain Beefheart and the late Frank Zappa and Patti Smith and Kim Gordon and plenty more.

But now we get a list of every book Art Garfunkel has read since 1968. Really, Art, keep it to yourself.

For more on this, read this piece in The Guardian.
