He was famously and somewhat controversially awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature last October, and then famously didn't bother turning up to the ceremony.

However, Bob Dylan was required to give a lecture/speech in order to claim the €1 million prize fund, which he did this June - and the 27-minute-long speech has been available to listen to online since then.

Dylan discussed his influences including Moby Dick and Buddy Holly, with some accusations of plagiarism floating around for parts of it - but now, it's being published in book-form for those who don't have the patience for the legendary musician's nasal voice.

Simon & Schuster have published the 32-page, 4097-word speech in both a standard edition ($16.99) and a limited edition run of 100 copies ($2,500 each).
