Brother Poets

Abby Zimet

In his recent extended interview, Bob Dylan on John Prine, who we hope is writing these days.

Prine's stuff is pure Proustian existentialism. Midwestern mindtrips to
the nth degree. And he writes beautiful songs...All that stuff about "Sam
Stone" the soldier junky daddy and "Donald and Lydia," where people
make love from ten miles away. Nobody but Prine could write like that.
