It's OK for the die hard Bobcat but overly long and often laborious for the regular fan like myself who thinks that a lot of the Dylan canon is shrouded in the kings new clothes.
Sadly, Marcus is up his own arse for a lot of the time as he tries to be far too clever in his prossaicism and his metaphore.
I found it a real struggle and much preferred the earlier bios of Bob that simply chronicled his life and influences up to whatever ponit in time by the likes of Howard Sounes or Clinton Halin.
Best of all of course is Bob's own recent Chronicles, Volume one.
I mean, if you are going to read bollox about Bob then the best bollox will come from Bob!!!
On the whole a bad choice book for me!
