Praise for Chronicles Volume 1:
‘Takes its place next to “On The Road “…as an essential record of an American artist’s manifest destiny.’ Observer
'Like discovering the lost diaries of Shakespeare… Maybe the most extraordinarily intimate autobiography by a 20th-century legend.' Daily Telegraph
'There are enough bizarre and entertaining snippets of information sprinkled throughout to fascinate the most jaded Dylan obsessive.' Independent
'Entertaining and surprisingly deprecating…“Chronicles Volume ” is tautly written, vividly cinematic, and funny'. Financial Times--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I come to this now with a long since developed wider appreciation of the "beat" poets which preceded Dylan. So I perceive the intentions herein to be more akin to, say, Ginsberg, than what was happening in the music scene of 1966. Viewed from that perspective I "get it".
I recommend reading out loud, repeatedly.
In all honesty, if I’d read this without knowing it was Dylan, I would’ve enjoyed it. It might not be for everyone, but if you’re already in to poetry and you’re a fan of Dylan’s music then you’d be mad to pass on this. Enjoy the insight in to his mind.
