Daniel Epstein writes this biography from the perspective of a musician and a fan of Bob Dylan. Having grown up in Floodwood, Minnesota, 35 miles from Hibbing where Dylan grew up and attending the University of Minnesota at the same time as Dylan, I never listened to much of his music. I read this book while listening to his music and have gained an appreciation for his talent as a poet and singer.

One would expect a lifelong Dylan fan to be far too invested to compose an objective account; but, surprisingly, Daniel Mark Epstein, seasoned poet-biographer, pulls it off. Epstein's raw, organic delivery and sumptuous, sensory detail elucidates and complicates...a delicious combination. This reviewer followed Epstein's lead and took in her first Dylan concert recently and found him to be every bit as captivating as the author claims--even more so--at the tender age of seventy-two. Epstein is the quintessential Dylan biographer.

Best part of the book is coverage of the 60s and 70s. Skims over the gospel years and the subpar 80s material. Not much probing of the last quarter century, other than band member changes. Good book, but could've been better.

It was very interesting to get some insight about someone who I really like as an artist, but who is very private toward the public. I think this is a book anyone who is interested in Dylan would enjoy.

Mark David Epstein is that odd but perfect combination of musician, poet and biographer. He weaves his story around Dylan concerts he attended starting as a teenager in D.C. in the early 1960s through a recent concert in a minor league baseball park, an apparently favored venue for Dylan's Neverending Tour. This is a very nicely written biography. It is kind to Dylan without glossing over flaws in his character and obvious faults in his logic. Epstein probably comes as close to getting Dylan as anything I've read.

Interesting account of Dylan's career from early days to present. Told with candor and affection. Chronicles his influence as a poet and balladeer. Worth reading.

Although this book was interesting the author tend to repeat a lot of the information he gave about Bob Dylan threw out to the book.

One of the best books yet about Dylan. Epstein reveals important developments and responses to relationships not brought out before.
