About the Author

Susan Compo is the author of Warren Oates: A Wild Life, as well as three works of fiction plus some music and sports journalism. A fanzine she did during punk s heyday is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She lives within running distance of Los Angeles.


'Susan Compo has done a marvelous job of laying bare the intricacies, disappointments, and triumphs Nic Roeg faced in bringing The Man Who Fell To Earth to the screen. There have been many books written about movies and celebrities, but this one stands out. You are about to be taken on a fascinating ride. - Graeme Clifford, film editor on "The Man Who Fell To Earth"
"In Earthbound, Susan Compo delves deep into every aspect of the film's making, from its Walter Tevis source novel, through the location shoot in New Mexico, to its stunning costumes and the circumstances surrounding Bowie's rejected and never-finished soundtrack. Detailed and vivid, Earthbound is a riveting read for Bowie fans, Roeg fiends, and anybody interested in seventies cinema." - Simon Reynolds, author of "Shock and Awe: Glam Rock and its Legacy"
'When a band of British filmmakers and crew decamped to New Mexico to make an art-house adaptation of an allegorical novel about alcoholism, they came out with a cult classic that baffles, enthrals and infuriates in equal measure. Untangling all the stages of its production, Compo makes film rights and editing battles a compelling read, with the New Mexico landscape--and a haunted leading man--its otherworldly centre.' - Record Collector
'There's more than enough in Earthbound for fans of the film to be satisfied [and] to give readers worthwhile insight into the
crazy trip that Bowie, Roeg, and the cast and crew concocted in New Mexico back in that summer of '75.' - Portland Mercury
'The strands are interwoven with gleaming prose, the writer mining detail like a forensic scientist. No potentially illuminating interview is left unturned, no ego unruffled. She makes you want to watch the film again. Do so accompanied by this grounded masterpiece.' - Classic Rock Magazine
