DYLAN ENCYCLOPEDIA PAPERBACK DELAY/OTHER NEWS

The first paperback edition of The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia, with its text updated since the hardback of 2006, has been delayed until mid-June on both sides of the Atlantic. For me at least, better news is that my 2007 book Hand Me My Travelin' Shoes: In Search of Blind Willie McTell has been shortlisted for the James Tait Black Prize for Biography. Regardless of who will win (the winner is usually announced during the Edinburgh Festival in August), this is a really big step for me, and real affirmation. Not to mention very exciting...

Congratulations on the prize business. When are we finally going to see a U.S. edition of the McTell bio?

A hard question to answer - several US publishers are said (by my agent) to be very interested, but none has actually put their money where their mouth it - yet. But of course they should hurry up about it: they'll have to pay far more for the US rights if I should happen to win the James Tait Black!
