A few weeks ago I listened to Blood on the Tracks while making dinner one night It had been years since I d listened to it all the way through but listening to a great album after years away is always a fantastic experience you re reminded that it s great for a reason It s not just superb art but also a lot of fun to listen to Suddenly I wanted to be reading a book about Bob Dylan I had two in the house A Freewheelin Time and Positively 4th Street The Lives and Times of Joan Baez Bob Dylan Mimi Baez Fari a and Richard Fari a and A Freewheelin Time seemed like something my pandemic brain could handleSuze Rotolo is the woman on the cover of The Freewheelin Bob Dylan and was in a serious relationship with Dylan for a few years her portrayal of Dylan seems honest but as the subtitle implies this memoir is about the whole milieu of the Village in the sixties the music scene and the activistpolitical scene Rotolo was a visual artist so some time is also spent detailing her years in art school in Italy The writing was uite basic but it was fun to learn about this particular period of US cultural history While I was reading this I also watched Scorsese s 3 hour Dylan documentary No Direction Home over several nights and if you decide to read this book I recommend you do that as well it was fun and helpful to be able to put faces and voices to the many people the book mentions including Rotolo herself However if i m being honest it would be just as much fun to watch the documentary and skip the book altogether Perception portrayal of Dylan seems honest but as the subtitle implies this memoir is about the whole milieu of the Village in the sixties the music scene and the activistpolitical scene Rotolo was a visual artist so some time is also spent detailing her years in art school in Italy The writing was uite basic but it was fun to learn about this Die swaard verteer particular The Silver Pigs put faces and voices to the many Rock the Boat people the book mentions including Rotolo herself However if i m being honest it would be just as much fun to watch the documentary and skip the book altogether

FREE READ × E-book, or Kindle E-pub ô Suze Rotolo Suze Rotolo ô 9 SUMMARY REVIEW A Freewheelin Time D memories of those tumultuous years of dramatic change and poignantly rising expectations when art culture and politics all seemed to be conspiring to bring our country a better freer richer and euitable life She writes of her involvement with the civil rights movement and describes the sometimes frustrating experience of being a woman in a male dominated culture before women’s liberation changed the rules for the better And she tells the wonderfully romantic story of her sweet but sometimes wrenching love affair and its eventual collapse under the pressures of growing fame. I have to admit I only read this because it was cheap and I wanted to suck what juicy marrow I could about Dylan from it There were a few anecdotes that brought to light the fullness of the DylanRotolo relationship by filling in the gaps left from all the biographies I ve read about him However I skimmed through the endless ramblings of Rotolo who through her own words seems stuck in the idea of proving to the rest of the world herself and possibly Dylan that she was than his girlfriend I think this would have been obvious through the telling of her own stories but the beat language and need to justify herself as than his girlfriend took away from her interesting personal history I am glad she told her story and maybe her need to protect Bobby kept her from divuldging the truth and complexity behind their years together or maybe the truth is they weren t as complex as we would like them to be Maybe they were just two teenagers in love during a time of historical significance Either way I think this book will sell simply to those neophyte s hungry for information or insight into the myth the legend and the man that is Bobby Dylan

    REVIEW A Freewheelin Time EBOOK / PDF [A Freewheelin Time] Suze Rotolo ô 9 SUMMARY Suze Rotolo has written a book based in part on her relationship with Bob Dylan as well as one that recaptures the essence of a decade the 1960s that set in train both progressive revolutionary and reactionary forces that transformed the world in ways that affect it to this day Though I was born in the 1960s in fact the same year that the Beatles came to the US my memories of it are largely personal and seen as vignettes and random images
