Tangled up in Bob Dylan biographer’s attack

Letters
·1-min read

May I share Howard Sounes’s disappointment with Clinton Heylin’s new biography of Bob Dylan (Report, 19 April). Like him, I was savaged by Heylin, in my case for writing “a pseudo-historical work”, which sounds as if I’d been taking tips from Donald Trump. Heylin appears to have been the first journalist to access Bob Dylan’s archive in Tulsa, and he doesn’t seem to appreciate that his book potentially had the USP to top them all. Instead, he has attacked a host of fellow writers. I note that “Heylin declined to comment” on your article, but a man with an ego as big as this is not going to let it lie.

• The extraordinary response of fans, politicians and commentators to the European Super League plan is impressive (European Super League collapsing as all six English clubs withdraw, 21 April). Having beaten capitalism, could they now put all that energy into combating racism, homophobia and misogyny?

• The Super League forgot to hire a Tory ex-minister as a lobbyist. Next time, it’ll come prepared.

• An academic department called the Centre for Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London (Opinion, 20 April)? In my day, that research was carried out in a back room at the students’ union.
