This critically acclaimed cultural history, by Pulitzer Prize - winning jour-nalist David Kinney, ventures into the world of obsessive Bob Dylan follow-ers (aka the - Dylanologists‖) to deliver an immersive work that reveals the artist's singular impact on individuals and the culture at large over the past five decades. Bob Dylan is the most influential songwriter of our time, and, after a half century, he continues to be a touchstone, a fascination and an enigma. From the very beginning, he attracted an intensely fanatical cult following and in The Dylanologists, Pulitzer Prize - winning journalist David Kinney ventures deep into this eccentric subculture to answer a question: What can Dylan's grip on his most enthusiastic listeners tell us about his tower-ing place in American culture? Kinney introduces us to a vibrant underground: diggers searching for un-heard tapes and lost manuscripts, researchers obsessing over the facts of Dylan's life and career, writers working to decode the unyieldingly mysteri-ous songs, fans who meticulously record and dissect every concert. It's an affectionate mania, but as far as Dylan is concerned, a mania nonetheless. Over the years, the intensely private and fiercely combative musician has been frightened, annoyed and perplexed by fans who try to peel back his layers. He has made one thing - perhaps the only thing - crystal clear: He does not wish to be known.
