Editorial Reviews

Review

“An expert look at the life and work of folk singer-songwriter and cultural icon Bob Dylan...an exceedingly comprehensive portrait of one of American’s most important and enigmatic musicians...excellent job of depicting Dylan as a man...certainly a must-read for Dylan fanatics”―Pop Cultural Studies; “gives an insight to Dylan and his songs that other books that focus on his life don’t. It’s a refreshing approach and if you’re really into Bob Dylan’s music, you should definitely read it...this book definitely made me appreciate his genius even more than I did before”―Crazy on Classic Rock --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Taking readers behind Bob Dylan's familiar image as the enigmatic rebel of the 1960s, this book reveals a different view--that of a careful craftsman and student of the art of songwriting. Drawing on revelations from Dylan's memoir Chronicles and a variety of other sources, the author arrives at a radically new interpretation of his body of work, which revolutionized American music and won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016. Dylan's songs are viewed as collages, ingeniously combining themes and images from American popular culture and European high culture. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
