Interesting and interestingly written, this is a good introduction to Dylan if you don't want to read Dylan himself... ( )

Publication of this one was BIG news in Rolling Stone, where it was [excerpted? printed in full?] maybe in advance of the orig. publication date, c. 1971

The Rolling Stone series was memorable enough that I remembered it & bought it off the shelves of Strand bookstore for $5 on 2/25/85

And looking forward to rereading sometime! ( )

The problem with Dylan biographies is that he's been famous for so long and changed so many times that biographies age out pretty quickly. If I'm remembering correctly, this was the first serious biography that actually tracked down factual material rather than working from what Dylan said. It's very readable and interesting. If you're interested in how the folk scene worked in the early sixties and how Dylan changed it, I recommend this book. ( )
