‘100 Songs is a good start, for anybody lucky enough to be starting out with such a genius’ The London Evening Standard
A new collection of Bob Dylan’s most essential lyrics – one hundred songs that represent the Nobel Laureate’s incredible musical range through the entirety of his career so far.
‘The Nobel acknowledges what we’ve long sensed to be true; that Mr. Dylan is among the most authentic voices America has produced, a maker of images as audacious and resonant as anything in Walt Whitman or Emily Dickinson.’ Dwight Garner, New York Times 'The Nobel committee got this right – Dylan’s ongoing achievement in American song is a literary feat to celebrate in his gaudiest of ways.’ Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone
Bob Dylan is one of the most important songwriters of our time and the first musician in history to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Perfect for students and younger readers as well as long-time fans, this portable, abridged volume of Dylan’s lyrics shines a light on the songs that mean the most from a music and cultural legend.
