Rock legend Bob Dylan's life story is to be released in audiobook form - courtesy of actor Sean Penn.

The taped version of Dylan's tome CHRONICLES: VOLUME ONE - which hits book store shelves on 12 October (04) - runs to a lengthy six hours, and bosses at SIMON + SCHUSTER AUDIO are delighted they've managed to sign up OSCAR-winning Penn to voice the singer's extensive life story.

CHRIS LYNCH, Executive Vice President and Publisher of Simon + Schuster Audio, says, "When we were thinking of actors to read the Bob Dylan audiobook, the first name on our list was Sean Penn.

"We knew he would be perfect for the material, and we are absolutely thrilled that an actor of his calibre will be reading Chronicles."

It will be the first audiobook that Penn has ever narrated.
