WHO IS THAT MAN? In Search of The Real Bob Dylan


WHO IS THAT MAN? In Search of The Real Bob Dylan

DAVID DALTON    Book Number: 89328    Product format: Paperback

The real Bob Dylan is Bobby Zimmerman, yearning to escape Hibbing, Minnesota, or the Woody Guthrie wannabe playing Greenwich Village haunts. Was he the Folk Messiah, the seething amphetamine hipster, born-again Bob, late Elvis-Dylan, Jack Fate, or living national treasure? Cultural historian, journalist and screenwriter David Dalton paints a revealing portrait of Bob Dylan, ingeniously divulging the three-card Monte games he plays with his persona. His fabrications are the most profound, interesting and authentic part of his personality, and guided by Dalton's cutting-edge insights and myth-debunking point of view, this imaginative biography integrates historical narrative with Dylan's own words and those of the people who knew him most intimately. It is an hilarious and mind-altering perspective on the man, the myth and the musical era. Chapter headings include The Hallucinated Alphabet, The Wild Mercury Sound including John Lennon, John Wesley Harding, Bob?s Wild West (Village) Show, and Down the Road. Very well illustrated with full page archive and some rare images, album covers and cartoons. 383 page softback import.
