Subject: RE: Review: Mayor of MacDougal - Van Ronk
It is a fabulous book, by a great writer and very sincere fan of Dave - genuinely interested in the way that he lived and how his life worked out the way it did.

Try the Josh White book by the same author.

I think what comes out is his respect of both these artists and their attempts to live a civilised decent life through times that didn't always help them.

I am an Elijah Wald fan.

all the best
