No Bob Dylan in 33 1/3 short list

The short list of possible new commissions for 33 1/3's series of slim volumes on classic albums maintains Bob Dylan's surprising under-representation on that list.

Of course, I find it particularly scandalous that they didn't take up my pitch for a study of John Wesley Harding, but I do find it more generally odd that Highway 61 Revisited remains the only one of the maestro's many memorable releases to be covered. One can argue that the world has enough Bob Dylan books in it already, but I still think that there is room for a rigorous and focused look at an undoubted classic.

You can read a draft introductory chapter here which explains why.
