Bob Dylan's first and only attempt at fiction, "Tarantula," ""was written in 1966, but, for various reasons that prevented its publication, it did not see the light of day until 1971. A faithful reflection of Dylan's best songs from that time period, "Tarantula "is required reading for anyone interested in his creative processes. The various texts, both in verse and in prose, that comprise this approximation to stream-of-consciousness writing are not exempt from the musicality of Dylan's compositions at the time, nor from the preoccupations and worries that accompanied the artist during what may very well have been the most important year of his career. Tarantula," primera y unica aproximacion de Bob Dylan a la ficcion literaria, fue escrita en 1966, pero, por vicisitudes diversas que harian imposible su publicacion, no veria la luz hasta 1971. Fiel reflejo de las mejores canciones de Dylan que corresponden a esa epoca, "Tarantula" es lectura obligada para todo el que este interesado en sus procesos creativos. Los textos en verso y en prosa que forman esta aproximacion a la escritura automatica no estan exentos ni de la musicalidad propia de las composiciones del Dylan de la epoca, ni de las preocupaciones que acompanan al artista en el que, posiblemente, sea el ano mas importante de su carrera."
