Hello, I'm looking for two (as far as I can tell) out of print Dylan books. Stewart Bickler's "The Red Rose and the Briar" and Vince Farinaccio's "Nothing to Turn Off: The Films and Videos of Bob Dylan". Links to buy would be appreciated, if not available, and there are PDFs or epubs in circulation that would be great also.

Thanks!

Nothing found - I mean, NOTHING - for Bickler.

Kobo do an ebook for Farinaccio

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/nothin ... -bob-dylan

and the UK lulu.com has this print-on-demand

http://www.lulu.com/gb/en/shop/vince-fa ... 55496.html

Preview (limited pages, but still quite extensive) from google here

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=W7p ... edir_esc=y

Google does work, honest.

Yeah my bad. I saw the Kobo one but I was thinking they had some DRM that only made it readable on Kobos. I guess I could Google that now.

This is how kobo describe the ebook - "Download options: EPUB 2 (Adobe DRM)" - which looks like it would be readable on other readers.

The Bicker (not Bickler) book isn't available from any bookseller with an online presence, but two libraries (in the world!) have a copy: Cambridge in the UK and Bowling Green State in the US. If you're at a university, or have a friend who is, in one of those countries, you could get it by interlibrary loan. (And then of course you could make your own photocopy or scan, but don't tell anyone I said that.)

A bit off topic, but Dylan acolyte John Wesley Harding wrote a great song called "The Red Rose and the Briar" that is worth a listen:

I saw that JWH song.

Also, if anyone's red both, would you recommend Nothing to Turn Off or Like a Bullet of Light as a go-to for reading specifically about Dylan on/in/through film.
