Often called Britains Bob Dylan, Donovan was an unconventional artist, a romantic outsider who ushered in a new sound to the folk genre. His international hits Mellow Yellow and Jennifer Juniper brought folk music to mainstream audiences. Scheduled to coincide with his 40th anniversary tour and the release of Sony/BMGs box set, The Autobiography of Donovan is an openly honest memoir about the life and times of Donovan. He recalls everything, from his days as an itinerate teen, camping on beaches and hitchhiking, to his life as a chart-topping folk star hob-knobbing with such legends as Joan Baez, Brian Jones, and even Bob Dylan, as well as his legendary trip with the Beatles to the Maharishi. With the same poetic charm that made his songs classics, The Autobiography of Donovan is a celebration of the 60s, filled with all the joy, love, and reverie of the times.
