Like A Rolling Stone
by Bob Dylan
Marcus' account of the song's development and significance is overwrought with adoration for Dylan, but you get the sense that the man can't help himself: he loves the song so much he wrote a whole book about it!
This little book tells the story of the groundbreaking album with a bit of fanfare and a lot of detail. Highly recommended as a primer on the "Like A Rolling Stone" era of Dylan.
Dylan's rollicking memoir drags you through his early career faster than Jack Kerouac drags you across the country in On The Road—and Kerouac's influence on Dylan's writing is evident throughout.
