As Mark Sinker observed in i The Wire i Marcus s contention is that there can be found in American folk a community as deep as electric as perverse and as conflicted as all America and that the songs Dylan recorded out of the public eye in a basement in Woodstock are where that community as a whole gets to speak But the country mapped out in this book as Bruce Shapiro wrote in i The Nation i is not Woody Guthrie s land for made for you and me It s what Marcus calls the old weird America This odd terrain this strange yet familiar backdrop to our common cultural history which Luc Sante in i New York i magazine termed the playground of God Satan tricksters Puritans confidence men illuminati braggarts preachers anonymous poets of all stripes is the territory that Marcus has discovered in Dylan s most mysterious music And his analysis of that territory reads like a thriller Ken Tucker i Entertainment Weekly i and exhibits a mad sparkling brilliance David Remnick i The New Yorker i throughout This new edition of i The Old Weird America i includes an updated discography div
