Bob Dylan, a folk-song writer and singer who, like fluoridation, rouses violent response.  His dark, urgent verse and emotional slash cut him out from the young hootenanny pack. Known best for "Blowin' in the Wind," this twenty-three-year-old, bony young man with a fleece-coloured face and a twang voice, started with songs of acute topicality, has moved on to chronic aches.  "I don't want to write for people any more," he said. "I want to write from inside me." Overlooking success, he ran into it.

Breaking news has Johnny Depp launching a new publishing imprint. Set to inaugurate the new endeavour will be the release of The Unraveled Tales of Bob Dylan.

The book aims to explore and unveil Dylan's enigmatic life and  will be based in part on interviews between Dylan and Douglas Brinkley, professor of history at Rice University. Historian Brinkley followed Dylan from Paris to Amsterdam in 2009 writing about "the Midwest's most famous son" for Rolling Stone in Bob Dylan's America.

Depp's imprint, Infinitum Nihil,(nothing is forever,)shares the name of his production company and will be a part of HarperCollins Publishers.
