Time Out Of Mind: The Lives Of Bob Dylan
- Paperback - Mainstream Publishing
In 1997, having failed to release a single new song in seven long years, Dylan put out the equivalent of two albums in a single package. He called it 'Time Out of Mind'. So began the renaissance, artistic and personal, that culminated in 2012's acclaimed 'Tempest'. In the concluding volume of his groundbreaking study, Ian Bell explores the unparalleled second act in a quintessentially American career. It is a tale of redemption, of an act of creative will against the odds, and of a writer who refused to fade away.

In this book, David Tossell looks beyond the wisecracks, interviewing Docherty himself, as well as former players and colleagues, to examine a remarkable career and reveal the personal heartaches behind the laughter.
