Robert Shelton met Bob Dylan when the young singer arrived in New York in 1961. He& became Dylan’s friend, champion, and critic. His book, first published in 1986, was hailed& as the definitive unauthorized biography of this moody, passionate genius. Shelton tells& the intimate and first-hand story of Bob Dylan’s formative years in Greenwich Village NYC,& and it is the only biography that has been written with his active cooperation.& ​



Dylan gave Shelton access to his parents, Abe and Beatty Zimmerman – whom no other& journalist has ever interviewed; to his brother, David; to childhood friends from Hibbing;& to fellow students and friends from Minneapolis; and to Suze Rotolo, the muse& immortalized on the cover of& Freewheelin’ , among others. Concluding Dylan’s& story& during his triumphant 1978 world tour, No Direction Home took 20 years to& complete and when it was finally published the book received widespread critical& acclaim.& & ​



Following his Nobel Prize for Literature Award in 2016, Dylan’s standing is higher than at& any time since the 1960s and Shelton’s book is now seen as a classic. This new illustrated& edition, published in the year of Dylan’s 80th birthday, includes key images of Dylan& throughout his incredible, enduring career, making it a must for all Dylan fans.& ​
