First Batch Of Dylan Memoirs Due In October

The first in a series of Bob Dylan's memoirs will be captured in "Chronicles: Volume One," hitting shelves Oct. 12 via Simon & Schuster. The volume is comprised of "first-person narratives focusing on significant periods in Dylan's life and career," according to the publisher.

Simon & Schuster executive VP/publisher David Rosenthal describes "Chronicles: Volume One" as "extraordinary, revealing and surprising. It is a beautifully written, singular achievement."

The 304-page book will carry a suggested retail price of $24 and feature a rare portrait on its back cover of Dylan from his early days in New York. A hardcover edition is expected in January.

Also arriving in October is Dylan's "Lyrics: 1962-2001," an updated version of a compendium first published in 1973 and revised in 1985.

Beyond the books, the 63-year-old music legend will be the subject of the tentatively titled Todd Haynes film "I'm Not There: Suppositions on a Film Concerning Dylan," due sometime next year, as well as a Martin Scorsese-helmed documentary, provisionally titled "Bob Dylan Anthology Project."

Dylan is in the midst of a minor-league baseball stadium tour with Willie Nelson that touches base tonight (Aug. 25) on Peoria, Ill.
