During a brief lull in our sparkling conversation, over some highly herbaceous cocktails, I mentioned to Bob Dylan that someone had donated a copy of The Rough Guide to Bob Dylan to our library.
"What's that?" Bob asked with tepid interest.
"Well, Rough Guides are a series of travel books, like Fodors or Frommers, but with the idea of being a bit more downscale and rough and ready."
"Travel books?" Bob asked.
"Yes." I replied. "Apparently you are like unto your own country now."
"Tell me about it." Bob groaned.
So I did.
