Summary

Selected and arranged by the author, and with a new introduction by novelist David Mitchell, How To Be Invisible presents the lyrics of Kate Bush for the first time in a beautiful cloth-bound Faber edition.

‘For millions around the world, Kate is way more than another singer-songwriter: she is a creator of musical companions that travel with you through life. One paradox about Kate is that while her lyrics are proudly idiosyncratic, those same lyrics evoke emotions and sensations that feel universal. Literature works in similar mysterious ways. Kate’s the opposite of a confessional singer-songwriter … You don’t learn much about Kate from her songs. She’s fond of masks and costumes – lyrically and literally – and of yarns, fabulations and atypical narrative viewpoints. Yet, these fiercely singular songs, which nobody else could have authored, are also maps of the heart, the psyche, the imagination. In other words, art.’ David Mitchell

Critic Reviews

I’m looking forward to Kate Bush’s How To Be Invisible. She has been my favourite singer and songwriter for my entire life. I’m so obsessed with her that I even have a tattoo devoted to 'Hounds of Love' on my right arm. I know her albums inside out, but this is the first time she’s released a book of her lyrics. I’d like to read them as poetry and see what different emotions they release in me.
