One Response to “The Real Dylan in China”

  1. Brian Holton says:

    Mr. Wilentz:

    I could barely stomach Maureen Dowd’s column of 4/10/11. I hope that you disavow the reference to you that she made in the column because it is she who is frozen in aspic, not Dylan. From the front lines of her office in the New York Times, Dowd resorts to the tiresome and lazy tactic of uninformed Dylan criticism. People have been attempting this for nearly 50 years without success–don’t you think they’d get it by now?
