Promotional Information

Written in 1966, Tarantula is a collection of poems and prose that evokes the turbulence of the times in which it was written, and gives a unique insight into Dylan's creative evolution - it was written during work on his magnum opus, Blonde on Blonde. The paperback edition of Chronicles Part 1 is published in October 2005. Tarantula will appeal to all readers of Dylan's autobiography and will introduce him to a new audience of fiction readers Tarantula went down in the annals of literary legend - it circulated widely as a 'bookleg', with reviewers photocopying the copies they had received to satisfy a demand the publisher failed to meet. Competition: John Lennon's In His Own Write

About the Author

Born in 1941, Bob Dylan is widely revered as America's greatest living popular songwriter. In the course of a career that has spanned over 40 years, he has acted as voice-piece and chronicler to several generations, and was one of the first to channel public feeling about racial discrimination and the Vietnam war into popular protest songs. Combining an acute awareness of the zeitgeist with absurdist humour, Dylan struck a chord with millions. In 2004, Bob Dylan published the first volume of his autobiography, Chronicles.


With Dylan's much-awaited autobiography coming this fall, he's going to be a hot item. Expect lots of hype. The songwriter released this collection of poems and wordplay in 1966, when he was 23. There's not much to it, but it would be good to have a copy. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Praise for Chronicles 1: 'Takes its place next to On The Road ... as an essential record of an American artist's manifest destiny' Observer 'Like discovering the lost diaries of Shakespeare ... Maybe the most extraordinarily intimate autobiography by a 20th-century legend' Daily Telegraph 'There are enough bizarre and entertaining snippets of information sprinkled throughout to fascinate the most jaded Dylan obsessive' Independent 'Entertaining and surprisingly deprecating ... Chronicles is tautly written, vividly cinematic, and funny' Financial Times
