There's a new book out called Ashes to Ashes: The Songs of David Bowie 1976-2016.
It's well researched; 10 years in the making during which the American author, Chris O'Leary, blogged it under the title Pushing Ahead of the Dame. And comprehensive, from production and musician credits to back stories, creative process, analysis of music and lyrics, notable performances and reviews, and anecdotes galore.
There's an angle of interest re: The Cure because it covers the periods Reeves Gabrels worked with Bowie and includes the albums and songs they co-produced, co-wrote or that Reeves played on.
