Bob Dylan’s “The Philosophy of Modern Song”: Twelve years in the making, this 360-page book is Bob Dylan’s lavish Valentine’s card for more than 60 of the songwriters and singers he most admires. They range from Hank Williams and Little Richard to Elvis Costello and Rodgers & Hart – and Dylan’s insights into music, culture and life in general are compelling. His views on women are another matter. In one chapter, he enthusiastically argues for the potential benefits of polygamous marriage. $45. Available at bookstores and Amazon
