"Ambitious. Bell handles Dylan brilliantly." -- The Spectator "Unmissable." -- Mail On Sunday "Forget F. Scott Fitzgerald's dictum about there being no second acts in American lives. Time Out Of Mind, part two of Ian Bell's magisterial biography of Bob Dylan, gives us a third and a fourth and sundry other acts in an ongoing drama. This is the best biography that rock has had." -- The Financial Times "Award-winning Bell continues his thoughtful, insightful biography of the enigmatic Mr. Dylan. There is much here to savor. A must for Dylan fans." -- Booklist (starred review) "A fluid biography of a man and musician whose ongoing personal narrative is as intricate and unique as his epic songs." -- Publishers Weekly
