it was ok
bookshelves: nonfiction

After reading this, I feel very sorry for Mr.Dylan. He may be blessed with talent and money/property but it does not seem to have brought him happiness. He appears to be a very private person. The author does not appear to have interviewed either Mr. Dylan or his immediate family and is on the outside looking into a very complicated individual. But then, great artists are usually complicated. The respect this author has for Mr. Dylan's music is profound and that comes through loud and clear. Just as the disdain this author had for John Lennon & Paul McCartney came through in "FAB". Perhaps his personal music tastes have influenced the author's work?

Petra Eggs Funny thing is that in real life Dylan is quite ordinary. Same kind of chit chat as everyone else, nothing deep...
