About How to Be Invisible
How to Be Invisible gathers the lyrics of singer-songwriter Kate Bush into 10 curated sections. Also, it includes an introduction by novelist David Mitchell, who collaborated with Bush in many occasions.
It is Mitchell who writes about the ‘Bush Paradox’. What he says is Kate Bush manages to write intensely idiosyncratic lyrics that at the same time, evoke universal emotions we can all relate to. Kate’s style is famously unrevealing. Instead of telling us about herself, her lyrics put her behind a costume and a mask.
