Her 10-year marriage to David was long troubled, writes Angela Bowie in Backstage Passes, out this month, but their 1980 breakup made for a tender scene. He took her to dinner, told her he was divorcing her, got drunk, and puked on his shoes. ”It was one of those weirdly honest moments,” she writes. ”I suddenly knew how much I still loved this man.”
