Bob Dylan is putting pen to paper again. Crain’s New York Business reports that the great singer-songwriter has signed a six-book deal with Simon & Schuster. The deal would reportedly cover two more volumes of Dylan’s Chronicles memoir series, another book based on his Sirius XM satellite radio show, and three more unspecified books.
None of this has been officially confirmed just yet (Simon & Schuster declined to comment), but it’s exciting news for Dylan fans. Chronicles: Volume One, published in 2004, danced through his career in unexpected ways, leaving readers eager to see where he’d go next. EW called that first memoir “a strikingly candid, endlessly fascinating tome” in our review at the time. I can’t wait to read volumes two and three — not to mention those mysterious three other books — whenever they come out.
What do you think of this news? Which periods of Dylan’s career would you like to see him revisit in the next two Chronicles?
