WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE

Music legend Bob Dylan's only work of fiction--a combination of stream of consciousness prose, lyrics, and poetry that gives fans insight into one of the most influential singer-songwriters of our time.

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 captures Bob Dylan's preoccupations at a crucial juncture in his artistic development, showcasing the imagination of a folk poet laureate who was able to combine the humanity and compassion of his country roots with the playful surrealism of modern art. Angry, funny, and strange, the poems and prose in this collection reflect the concerns found in Dylan's most seminal music: a sense of protest, a verbal playfulness and spontaneity, and a belief in the artistic legitimacy of chronicling everyday life and eccentricity on the street.

Review:

Praise for Chronicles Volume 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 Volume ” is tautly written, vividly cinematic, and funny'. Financial Times
