Bob Dylan‘s Nobel Prize acceptance speech has been turned into a book.
Dylan was named as the recipient of the award for literature last year, but missed the official prize-giving ceremony in December due to “previous commitments”. He eventually accepted the award in person at a private event in Stockholm in April.
Now, publishers Simon & Schuster have announced the publication of his acceptance speech as a 32-page book. The work will be available as a standard hardcover volume, and as a special signed and numbered edition.
Limited to only 100 copies, the special edition will be priced at $2,500 (£1,882).
The December 2017 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – with Robert Plant on the cover. Plant and his band have also compiled our free CD, which includes tracks by Bert Jansch, Daniel Lanois, Patty Griffin, Thee Oh Sees and more. Elsewhere in the issue, we remember Tom Petty and there are new interviews with REM, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Bootsy Collins, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Ronnie Spector. We review Morrissey, Sharon Jones, Mavis Staples, Hüsker Dü, Tim Buckley and Talk Talk and much more.
