Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With Dylan's much-awaited autobiography coming this fall, he's going to be a hot item. Expect lots of hype. The songwriter released this collection of poems and wordplay in 1966, when he was 23. There's not much to it, but it would be good to have a copy. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

This book is bob dylan. Wierd, comical and strange as you read this book you can almost hear mr.dylan singing the words.

This was finally released aroun' 1971 and is a collection of prose poems - items valued often just as much just for sound as for literal meaning. Dylan should still be proud of this up to this very day - it has sight and also insight, visions and images you could feel even tomorry, mate.

This is positively the most ridiculous excuse for a 'book' that I have ever seen. It has no coherence whatsoever, and there is no reason to expect communication can come from this. I would receive more inspiration from meditating all thoughts from my mind than from looking at this trash. I hope this doesn't distract those disaffected from ordering books from you, but I forget, they probably don't have credit cards anyway.

this conjures up so many images you think you must be inside the mind of bob dylan when you read it. this is a good thing, don't worry. this is truly beautiful & perfectly perfect for a dylan lover (like meself) or a poet who likes free verse or a deep thinker or an ex-beat or anyone you think deserves such a masterpiece. my favorites are the last one & the one about the boy in the tree & marxism. I swear, in the last poem, i think he knows me. p.s.: you know, i read this in about two days it was so good, but i still carry it around with me wherever i go, & it inspired me to write poetry which i now do. p.p.s.: in short, it was really really good.
