When Bob Dylan arrived in New York in 1960, Robert Shelton became his friend, champion, and critic. Dylan has always been very private and guarded, yet he gave Shelton his full cooperation for this compulsively readable 1986 biography, which was 20 years in the making. It remains the closest thing we have to an insider's account of this complex, passionate genius, and this slightly abridged, oversized edition is complemented with 150 photographs that span Dylan's career. "No journalist has covered Dylan's career longer or with more respect than Robert Shelton."—New York Times
