Publisher Comments:

Drawing on revelatory interviews, a rich analysis oflyrics, and a lifelong study of one of the greatest songwriters of our time,Daniel Mark Epstein delivers a singular, nuanced, and insightful examination ofBob Dylan—the poet, the musician, and the man. Interweaving in-depthconversations with Dylan collaborators and contemporaries, including Eric Andersen,Tom Paxton, Woody Guthries daughter Nora Guthrie, RamblinJack Elliott, Pete Seeger, Maria Muldaur, John P.Hammond, and many others, Epstein crafts a vivid and unforgettable portrait ofthe inimitable poet and performer. Readers of Christopher Ricks Dylans Visions of Sin, the Dylanautobiography, Chronicles, or Sean Wilentzs Dylan inAmerica, as well as fans enthralled by expository musician stories, such asKeith Richards Life and PattiSmiths Just Kids, will be captivatedby Epsteins unprecedented and incisive look at Bob Dylan, musics mostineffable creator.

Synopsis:

Through the lens of four seminal concerts, acclaimed poet and biographer Daniel Mark Epstein offers an intimate, vivid, and comprehensive portrait of Bob Dylan. Beginning in 1963, Epstein revisits Dylan's early struggles to find artistic direction; his transition from folk icon to rock star; and his secluded family life and divorce. A breathtaking account of Dylan's Never Ending Tour and his contemporary studio sessions brings us full circle, revealing how Dylan revived a flagging career and accepted his role as the éminence grise of rock and roll today.

Drawing on new interviews with those closest to Dylan—including Maria Muldaur, Nora Guthrie, and Ramblin' Jack Elliott—The Ballad of Bob Dylan is a singular take on an artist who has transformed generations and continues to inspire and surprise today.
