Bob Spitz, drawing on hundreds of interviews with Dylan's family, friends, lovers and fellow musicians, presents the true Bob Dylan in a vast array of guises: the early years in Minnesota, when loner and local weirdo Bobby Zimmerman reinvented himself as Bob Dylan; the cataclysm that occurred when he went electric; the mad years, when drugs corrupted his gospel of peace and love; and his flirtations with political causes, various religions and superstardom.
