A Biased But Interesting Look At Dylan
This is a unique take on a biography. Daniel Mark Epstein's obvious adoration for Bob Dylan is reflected in his writing. We see Dylan through the eyes of a fan, rather than a true biographer. Epstein begins with his first Dylan concert in 1963 and ends with the last concert he attended in 2009. For me, the intense focus on the four concerts the author attended was too much. Each song in the set lists was broken down for us, right down to the key Dylan played in. What I did learn was that Epstein must have taken and kept copious notes of his concert experiences.
That being said, there were some great nuggets of information within these pages. We're given a glimpse of Dylan in a way that his other biographies do not show us. This is a perfect book for the hardcore Dylan fan. Others might want to start with a more general biography.
