Bob the Bob.

David Yaffe reviewed three resasonably recent books on Dylan, in believable fashion, for The Nation last month. The books are Marcus's Like a Rolling Stone: Bob Dylan at the Crossroads; Ricks's Dylan's Visions of Sin; and Marqusee's Chimes of Freedom: The Politics of Bob Dylan's Art; he also takes a glancing stab at Chronicles, Vol. 1. It'd be nice to read a Dylan review one day that doesn't tell me that something's going on, only [ ] doesn't know what it is, but that might be asking too much, so I'll just say good luck.

Marcus's book was also recently reviewed in the San Francisco Chronicle.
