WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATUREThe celebrated first memoir from arguably the most influential singer-songwriter in the country, Bob Dylan.Id come from a long ways off and had started a long ways down. But now destiny was about to manifest itself. I felt like it was looking right at me and nobody else. So writes Bob Dylan inChronicles: Volume One,his remarkable book exploring critical junctures in his life and career. Through Dylan's eyes and open mind, we see Greenwich Village, circa 1961, when he first arrives in Manhattan. Dylan's New York is a magical city of possibilities - smoky, nightlong parties; literary awakenings; transient loves and unbreakable friendships. Elegiac observations are punctuated by jabs of memories, penetrating and tough. With the book's side trips to New Orleans, Woodstock, Minnesota, and points west,Chronicles: Volume Oneis an intimate and intensely personal recollection of extraordinary times. By turns revealing, poetical, passionate, and witty,Chronicles: Volume Oneis a mesmerizing window on Bob Dylan's thoughts and influences. Dylan's voice is distinctively American: generous of spirit, engaged, fanciful, and rhythmic. Utilizing his unparalleled gifts of storytelling and the exquisite expressiveness that are the hallmarks of his music, Bob Dylan turnsChronicles: Volume Oneinto a poignant reflection on life, and the people and places that helped shape the man and the art.Chroniclesstunned everyone . . .

The books structure is elegant . .. Chronicles is tautly written, vividly cinematic, and funny . . . a courageous little book Financial Times There is something on every page, in every paragraph, that demands attention . . . In rock and roll terms, this book is like discovering the lost diaries of Shakespeare. It may be the most extraordinarily intimate autobiography by a 20th-century legend Daily Telegraph
