The Guardian is reporting this
morning that Bob Dylan has finally committed to the followups – two
specifically, plus four other proposals – to 2004’s memoir Chronicles: Volume One. His publisher, Simon & Schuster, has
revealed that Dylan has signed a 6-book deal that would presumably capitalize,
initially, on the critical and commercial success of Chronicles, which spent 19 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
Among the possibilities:
*Chronicles volumes two and three (Volume Two has reportedly already been in the works since 2008)
*a collection of on-air comments Dylan has made over the
years while hosting his Sirius XM satellite radio show “Theme Time Radio Hour.”
More details as they are disclosed.
