Bob Dylan: Chronicles: Volume One

Toby Creswell, Sydney Morning Herald, the, 13 November 2004

THERE'S NO WAY that Bob Dylan, after all this time, is going to spill the beans on his life. The high priest of protest makes Greta Garbo look like a publicity hound. For 40 years, Dylan has hidden in plain sight behind an evolving mystique. We can be certain, based on the habits of his lifetime and the frequent hints through this book, that Chronicles: Volume One is not the truth in any literal sense. However, it has, like his songs, an amusing and illuminating truth of its own.
