No direction home : Bob Dylan by Bob Dylan( visu )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,152 libraries worldwide
Portrait of an artist as a young man, and of the times he lived in.

He takes from others: singing styles, chord changes, and rare records. He keeps moving: on stage, around New York City and on tour, from Suze Rotolo to Joan Baez and on, from songs of topical witness to songs of raucous independence, from folk to rock. He drops the past. He refuses, usually with humour and charm, to be simplified, classified, categorized, or finalized: always becoming, we see a shapeshifter on a journey with no direction home
