No Direction Home

The Life and Music of Bob Dylan
by Robert Shelton
New edition edited by Elizabeth Thomson and Patrick Humphries

Of more than a thousand books published about Bob Dylan it is only this one that has been written with Dylan's active cooperation. No Direction Home took 20 years to complete and when it was finally published the book received widespread critical acclaim.

Two decades on, Dylan's standing is higher than at any time since the 1960s and Shelton's book is now seen as a classic of the genre. This new edition includes key images of Dylan throughout his incredible, enduring career, updated footnotes and bibliography, and a new, selective, discography.

Author Robert Shelton was born in Chicago in 1926 and was on the staff of the New York Times for two decades until he went to Europe. Best known as the man who “discovered” Bob Dylan, he was the principle chronicler of the 1960s US folk revival. His books include the Woody Guthrie collection Born to Win, The Face of Folk Music, The Country Music Story and The Electric Muse. He died in 1995.
"A book that comes closer to finding the essence of the real Bob Dylan, and the mythic one, than any before it and possibly since." The Courier-Mail, Australia "The finest of the many biographies." Jim DeRogatis, Chicago Sun Times
