The lives and times of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Mimi Baez Farina, and Richard Farina. Almost as gripping as a novel, but Hajdu does not love his characters. He portrays the principals unflatteringly: Bob is self-centered and egotistical; Joan is shallow, insecure, and arrogant; Richard is charming but crazy. Only Mimi comes off well, but a little naive.
