The Ballad of Bob Dylan: A Portrait
  Posted by The Walrus on Tuesday, August 18, 2015


    We’ve got another audiobook treat for you!  Tune in tonight at 8pm Atlantic (7pm Eastern, 6pm Central, 4pm Pacific, 12am London, 11am Sydney) for the first in a 13-part series of Daniel Mark Epstein’s book “The Ballad of Bob Dylan: A Portrait.”

    Drawing on revelatory interviews, a rich analysis of lyrics, and a lifelong study of one of the greatest songwriters of our time, Daniel Mark Epstein delivers a singular, nuanced, and insightful examination of Bob Dylan: the poet, the musician, and the man. Interweaving in-depth conversations with Dylan collaborators and contemporaries – including Eric Andersen,Tom Paxton, Woody Guthrie’s daughter, Nora Guthrie, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Pete Seeger, Maria Muldaur, John P.Hammond, and many others – Epstein crafts a vivid and unforgettable portrait of the inimitable poet and performer.  Readers of Christopher Ricks’ Dylan’s Visions of Sin, the Dylan autobiography, Chronicles, or Sean Wilentz’s Dylan in America, as well as fans enthralled by expository musician stories, such as Keith Richards’ Life and Patti Smith’s Just Kids, will be captivated by Epstein’s unprecedented and incisive look at Bob Dylan, music’s most ineffable creator.

    I hope you’ll like what you hear, and if you enjoy the book, be sure to pick up your own copy at Amazon.  Thanks for tuning in!
