Annotation:
There are many books about the iconic musical artist Bob Dylan, but with THE BALLAD OF BOB DYLAN: A PORTRAIT, Daniel Mark Epstein takes a unique approach. Focusing on four seminal Dylan concerts, Epstein reveals the growth and multiple sides of this mercurial and important cultural figure. Epstein's story begins in 1963 in D.C., moves to Madison Square Garden in 1974, stops by Tanglewood in 1997, and finally arrives in Aberdeen in 2009. Epstein juxtaposes these discreet moments in the artist's career with interviews with many those who worked with Dylan and knew him best.
