Obverse Books is proud to announce the forthcoming publication of STARDUST & SNOW, Paul Magrs’ magical Christmas story.

Last year, the British author Paul Magrs was told a wonderful true story about a young boy’s meeting David Bowie, which he shared with the world via his blog. The story was embraced by people everywhere and, after being reposted by David’s wife Iman and his son and many other lovely people, quickly went viral.

Now, for this Christmas, he’s gone back and turned that story into a perfect little Christmas fairy tale, ‘Stardust & Snow’.

This is the tale of one shy young boy’s encounter during a 1980s Christmas with the legendary David Bowie. It’s about a moment in which one of the great secrets of the universe is revealed and passed on. It’s about the secret of how to bravely be yourself and overcome all your fears.

STARDUST & SNOW is a modern fairy-tale in the tradition of Truman Capote’s ‘A Christmas Memory’ and Dylan Thomas’s ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’, allowing us to visit a lost moment in a Christmas past: a touching, almost forgotten fragment in the life of one of stardom’s great creators – and that of one small boy.

When he was a kid, Daniel won a competition and he went off to London to meet David Bowie at Christmas…
He was a quiet kid, a shy kid and the crowds were alarming. He took his grandma with him and she was grumpy all day.
But when they met David there was magic and glitter and stardust in the air as well as snow, and he taught the boy all about magic and the wearing of invisible masks…

 

‘I think that’s beautiful. That’s absolutely lovely. What an amazing story. Ah, it’s gorgeous.’ – Russell T Davies

‘If you’ve ever loved a person, either someone you knew in real life or someone world famous, you’ll know nothing brings more joy than hearing a wonderful story about them after they have died. And this is one of the most wonderful stories you could wish for. It will lighten and brighten the hearts of everyone who reads it.’ – Jill Mansell

‘This story might make you cry. It’s so inspiring and beautiful and also very sad at the same time.’ – Amanda Palmer

‘I love it so much.’ – Neil Gaiman
