Some people are liking our book, already!

It's early days yet, but The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia's initial review coverage (reproduced below, in brief, with sideswipes surgically removed) is very promising.

***

Magnificent…won’t just astonish readers with its detail about Dylan’s work…contains so many insights and refutes so many myths about the rock ‘n’ roll era in general that it’s invaluable as both a reference guide and a personality study – Nashville City Paper

Amazingly well-researched and surprisingly readable – Library Journal

Deeply impressive…destined to be the most important Dylan book, bar none – Gerry Smith, The Dylan Daily

It has wit, opinion, style, and asks to be read, not just consulted…Gray appraises and scolds with terrific confidence…Staggeringly erudite, meticulously sourced… - The Village Voice

Utterly idiosyncratic – New York Times

All you need to know, and more, about [Dylan] – Richard Corliss, Time.com

Comprehensive and up-to-date – Slate

Door-stopping detail – The Toronto Star
