Photographs.

Editorial Reviews

Bob Spitz takes his place ... among the most able chroniclers of the many myths, poses and postures of the middle-class Jewish boy from Minnesota and his dogged and at times ruthless pursuit of superstardom. — Boston HeraldThe great strength of this biography, apart from the massiveness of Spitz's research, is its respect for Dylan's talent, and an understanding of his social and musical talent. — London Sunday TelegraphyWhat one can get from this book is a sense of the terrific momentum of Dylan's life and work in the early and mid-60s, the period when Dylan made his mark and made a world: no other book captures it so well, understanding so well that this is the period that matters. — Greil Marcus (Washington Post Book World)
