He writes not just about Mr. Dylan but about what it's like to have lived in close psychic and musical proximity to him for so long." "Janet Maslin, "The New York Times"""
"All David Dalton's books are wonderful, but "Who Is That Man?" is especially insightful, funny, and beautifully written." "Marianne Faithfull""

"[Dalton's] attempts at exposing, debunking, and celebrating the essence of Robert Zimmerman's Dylanness, and vice versa, make for an intriguing, often amusing, vision quest. Dylan's quirks, kinks, and inscrutability are fascinating fodder for endless interpretations. Dalton is entitled to his, and they're the opposite of dull." Robin Finn, The New York Times Book Review"

Dalton's descriptions of the mind of a Dylan fan ring very close to home. Dylan may not want to be stared at, but I'll keep watching him through my binoculars.
When Dalton compared Dylan to Schrodinger's cat, I realized that Dalton is the "Dylan" of rock writers.
