Untangles the relationship between New York and Dylan by examining the role that New York City played in the creation of his music and evolution of his creative process. Packed with detailed information about where he worked and more importantly where he played, wrote and socialised, Sawyers brings the cafes, bars, studios and avant garde clubs alive in this psychogeographic peek into a key creative period of Dylan's career and the people surrounding him at the time.
