Why Don’t I Want to Meet Bob Dylan?

Saturday, December 5th, 2009

I am often asked if I’ve met Bob Dylan, or did I interview him for my book.

The answer to both questions is not only no – the answer, my friend, is I don’t really want to meet Bob Dylan.

I will explain later, in more detail, why I feel this way. But I just came across a great quotation from Margaret Atwood that almost totally summarizes my feelings:

“Wanting to know an author because you like her work is like wanting to know a duck because you like paté.” – Margaret Atwood
