Notes: The author interviewed seventeen women and one man, who live(d) with rock stars, about their private lives with these public personalities. Each chapter includes a few pictures, a short biography and the reminiscences of these
people. Of particular interest is the sixteen page chapter on Suze Rotolo, who is always referred to as 'Susan' Rotolo in this book. No great revelations here, or even juicy gossip; instead a rather pleasant telling of her story and memories. Her
favorite bit of advice that Dylan gave her: "Never let anybody take up your space." It ends with her regrets about turning Dylan down (for her husband's sake) sometime in the mid-seventies,
when he called her out of the blue and wanted to see her again. Looking back, she saw her decision, which was not based on her own feelings, as a violation of Dylan's advice. In the two nice photos of her by Harvey Wang, she looks very much like she
did on the Freewheelin' cover, only the 40-something Suze ('Susan') is not beaming with love, as she was on Dylan's arm.
