Review by

This is a really intimate book, it is clear that Dylan gives it everything he's got to make it as truly auto-biographical as possible. As you would expect from Dylan it is stunningly written and occasionally makes you stop just to admire his ability to write even in this format. One thing is for certain, if you like Dylan's music and haven't read this you are doing yourself an injustice. Finally this book is responsible for introducing me to the music of Woody Guthrie and that really isn't any bad thing!
