sweden OM BOB DYLAN, by Sara Danius,
Secretary of the Nobel Academy

     OM BOB DYLAN, (About Bob Dylan) was written by the late Sara Danius, former permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, that gave the Nobel Prize in litterature to Bob Dylan. It is published by the Swesish Academy.
     The first edition carries this text: "This small book is included in a serie of publications/writings published to a certain extent irregularity. They are at first hand thought to be given as a gift to friends of the Swedish Academy and are not intended for sale."
     Due to public demand(?), a second edition was printed,that went for sale in book stores. It is about the process giving the Nobel prize to Bob Dylan. Really interesting read about how he finally met the Academy and picked up the medal. Only in Swedish language so far. Thank you to Per Sandwall for information, translation and scan.
