Praise for "Down the Highway" "Sounes [has] produced [a] fascinating and finely written account of Dylan's life and times, while managing at the same time to provide interesting evaluations of his music and cultural contribution."--"The New Republic" "Sounes . . . pieces together testimony and circumstantial evidence into a fairly detailed account of Dylan's wreck. . . . It's the kind of thing Sounes does well, opening new angles on the enigmatic polyhedron that is Dylan."--"The Nation" "[Sounes] offers information that, in sheer quantity, supersedes prior accounts."--"The New York Times Book Review" "Sounes' book has the definite virtue of being the last one you'll ever need to read about Dylan."--"Salon" "With little sensationalism, the inscrutable and intensely private Dylan is dissected, measured, and categorized."--"Esquire" "[Sounes] has scoured court documents and interviewed friends, family, lovers, band members and anyone else who hads

Reseña del editor:

Bob Dylan stands out with Elvis Presley and The Beatles in a triumvirate of popular-music artists of unparalleled achievements, influence and public fascination. He changed popular music in the 1960s, and helped define that decade with songs 'Blowin' in the Wind' and 'Like a Rolling Stone'. Yet he resisted those who attempted to define him. An aratist of indomitable energy and single-mindedness, he went on to create new work - on albums such as BLOOD ON THE TRACKS and TIME OUT OF MIND - which rivals his past glory.

He has outlasted all his contemporaries, selling more than 56 million records over forty years. In 2001, the year of his sixtieth birthday, Bob Dylan is as relevant to a young audience as to those who grew up with his music.

DOWN THE HIGHWAY celebrates the grandeur of Dylan's artistic achievement and reveals the complete life story of the reclusive, mercurial and eccentric man who has been an enigma for so long. This major new biography is based on a mountain of research conducted over three years, including interviews with more than 250 people in Dylan's life - lovers, friends, relatives, former employees and music stars. Many interviewees are key people who have not spoken before. Author Howard Sounes has also had access to previously unseen documentary evidence. In this magnificent and authoritative account he takes the reader to the heart of Dylan's life and work.
