Bob Dylan and The Midnight Roamer
The two men began writing to each other; their letters reflect their chaotic life, their genius... and their moods. But also the 60s: Vietnam war, JKF’s and MLK’s assassinations...
From Nashville to Saigon and from Newport to Paris, the readers follow the buddies: Cash on stage in Folsom prison, in 1968, a stoned Marilyn Monroe, a furious Richard Nixon, a splendid and generous Alice Cooper, Kris Kristofferson as a cleaner in Columbia studios.
Michel Embareck and his double – the old radio presenter known as the “Midnight Roamer” – revisit American history, from the bloody struggle for civil rights to the election of Obama.
