LONDON - Great news for Bob Dylan fans. The legendary singer is putting pen to paper again.
Dylan has reportedly signed a deal with his publisher Simon and Schuster to write six more books, including two follow-ups to his 2004 best-selling memoir ‘Chronicles: Volume One’, reports the Guardian.
Another book in the deal is said to be a collection of Dylan’s musings from the Theme Time Radio Hour, which he hosts on the Sirius XM.
No other details have been revealed regarding the remaining three books on his contract.
Hannah Corbett, a spokeswoman for Simon and Schuster, said getting a concrete date for additional books from Dylan was tricky because the star was ‘very hard to pin down’.
Fans have been agog since the publisher revealed in 2008 that Dylan had begun work on another book.Chronicles: Volume One’ charted Dylan’s arrival - as Robert Zimmerman - in New York City in 1962 and the recording of his first album.
It was well received by fans and spent 19 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. (ANI)
