Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"A brisk and funny (if somewhat over-the-top) prose stylist, [Sloman] records some interesting moments...but he never really gets close enough to Dylan to offer readers any insights....Reading his memoir, one goes from rooting for the underdog to wishing he'd just go home." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"An intense portrayal of the man who has defined and redefined rock-and-roll for nearly four decades, On the Road with Bob Dylan is required reading for any fan. From the music to the groupies, the book captures the aura of an era. Anyone can go see him in concert, but very few have the chance to actually know the musician. Thanks to Sloman's book, readers can come pretty darned close." Hunter Foreman, BookPage

Synopsis:

First published in 1978, this mesmerizing description of Dylan's 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour that supported his multiplatinum album "Desire" is reissued and candidly captures the all-night revelry and musical prowess that made the tour a nearly mystical experience. 16 -page photo insert.
