Bob Dylan. Quale Dylan? Lo sbarbatello con l. a. chitarra acustica a tracolla e l. a. sigaretta di traverso?

Oppure quello con los angeles giacca di pelle, i denims a tubo, gli stivali a punta e gli occhiali scuri che strapazza una Stratocaster e impreca contro los angeles comunità folks? O, forse, quello fulminato sulla through di Damasco che pare si nasconda tra l. a. folla dei fedeli in una delle chiese evangeliche più all'avanguardia della California? Di Dylan ce ne sono tanti e nessuno è il vero Bob Dylan, o forse lo sono tutti. Anzi, sembra quasi che non esista. Forse perché lui più di ogni altro artista del Novecento ha saputo incarnare le pulsioni contrastanti della società statunitense, spesso cavalcando l'onda del cambiamento e mimetizzandosi come un abile camaleonte umano. "Wickod Messenger" non è l'ennesima biografia di Bob Dylan. È, piuttosto, il tentativo riuscito di ricostruire un periodo storico, quello degli anni sessanta, attraverso le liriche del cantautore più importante di sempre. Mike Marqusee fa rivivere una storia in bianco e nero, restituendole i colori che solo il giusto distacco emotivo e l. a. necessaria distanza temporale possono rianimare.
