Bob Dylan Signs With Simon & Schuster for Six-Book Deal
It seems like Bob Dylan will be spending a lot more of his time writing, as the famed songwriter and book publisher Simon & Schuster have agreed to a six-book deal. The terms include proposed sequels to his 2004 memoir, Chronicles: Volume One, along with another book based off of his Sirius/XM radio show, Theme Time Radio Hour.
In a previous Rolling Stone article, Dylan explained some of his ideas for Chronicles: Volume 2. “I think I can go back to the Blonde on Blonde album — that’s probably about as far back as I can go on the next book,” he said. "Then I’ll probably go forward. I thought of an interesting time. I made this record, Under the Red Sky, with Don Was, but at the same time I was also doing the [second] Wilburys record. I don’t know how it happened that I got into both albums at the same time.”
No other details have been revealed regarding the remaining three books on his contract. According to RS, the legendary songwriter had been seeking an eight-figure deal for the book contract, although that number has not been confirmed.
