Written by Bob Dylans most prolific chronicler, this magisterial biography illuminates what drives, inspires, influences, and shapes the man behind the music.<P>Beginning with Dylans fiercely individualistic childhood in Minnesota, Clinton Heylin explores Dylans arrival in New York in 1960, his subsequent rise as heir-apparent to Woody Guthrie, his emergence as the unwitting leader of the highly political folk revival of early 60s Greenwich Village, and his sudden and shocking metamorphosis into rocks poetic guiding force.<P>Heylin also details the rest of this influential artists mercurial career, including the lost years of the 80s, Dylans struggles with addiction, and his re-emergence as a triumphant and revered 90s troubadour -- winner of three 1997 Grammys, including Album of the Year -- who spends most of his life on the road.<P>Bob Dylan is an endlessly fascinating yet obsessively private person; this is the first time his fans will truly get to know the man behind the shades.
