FILE - In this Feb. 6, 2015 file photo, Bob Dylan accepts the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year award at the 2015 MusiCares Person of the Year show in Los Angeles. Dylan’s “Tarantula,” a stream-of-consciousness work first released in 1971, is finally coming out in audio. Simon & Schuster announced Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019, that Will Patton is the narrator, reciting such lines as “raggedy ann daughter of brazos and teeth in the necklace.” Dylan first wrote “Tarantula” in the mid-1960s, at the height of his career. But his 1966 motorcycle accident delayed publication and made the book a kind of underground legend, with unauthorized versions turning up. (Photo by Vince Bucci/Invision/AP, File)
