Bob Dylan's acclaimed autobiography:

"A book which measures up to - and in many respects surpasses - the highest hopes anyone could have had of it. The narrator of Chronicles turns out to be a superbly candid and engaging character, with a sharp descriptive eye ... If you've always wondered how this man transformed the supposedly antique certainties of folk music into the soundtrack to the most self-consciously forward-looking of decades, this book has the answer"
(Independent on Sunday)
"Every line of Chronicles reverberates with the marrow-shaking snarl of the mesmerizing voice that first signed up with Columbia Records in New York City in 1961 ... You realise why Dylan will always be part of the unofficial soundtrack of our lives [so there's an 'official' soundtrack somewhere? NFN]. Chronicles takes its place next to On the Road and Guthrie's Bound For Glory as an essential record of an American artist's manifest destiny."
(Robert McCrum, Observer)
