Even if you're not a fan, there's probably some pretty interesting stories in this.

On Friday it was said it was cancelled (http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2013/09/morrissey_autob.html). Today it's not cancelled. (http://www.punknews.org/article/52955/morrissey-book-agreement-back-on-for-uk-eu)

7956

Looks like it's a UK release only for the moment.

LOL...rumour was he cancelled it because of "content disagreements " with Penguin (the publishers)

However....thsi seems to have either
A: been cleared up or
B: not really a probelm as reported...


That lovable scamp Morrissey has decided to pull his autobiography from distribution just three days before it was planned to hit the shelves. According to fan site True To You, which regularly receives dispatches from the Moz himself, the book is being killed due to a last minute "content disagreement" between the publisher, Penguin books, and Morrissey. The book was highly anticipated as it was supposedly going to feature inside information about the former Smiths frontman's relationship with Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and why the Smiths ended in the first place.

and later....


Morrissey has vowed to publish his autobiography "within weeks" following reports he blocked the book's release just days before it was due to hit stores.

The message, posted on True-to-you.net, reads, "Clarification... The publication of Morrissey's Autobiography remains with Penguin Books. This is a deal for the UK and Europe, but Morrissey has no contract with a publisher for the U.S. or any other territory. As of Sept. 13, Morrissey and Penguin (UK) remain determined to publish within the next few weeks."

Apprently it is 600 pages long...and has the reason why THE SMITHS broke up in it!!!

I am going to buy it!!

Some Amazon sellers have got this available in the US now, you can read a preview here (http://www.amazon.com/Autobiography-MORRISSEY/dp/0141394811/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1382906481&sr=1-1&keywords=morrissey+autobiography#reader_B00FMFEA68 ).

This looks hilarious and pretentious.

Read a long review of this in the paper yesterday...the reviewer thought it was equally fascinating and infuriating. There's 8 or 9 pages on the importance of the New York Dolls, I know Morrissey is a huge fan so that part is probably what I want to read most. I went through a huge Smiths phase many years ago but I never listen to them these days.

Yeah, he was even president of the New York Dolls fan club at one point!!

I can imagine this book being both fascinating and infuriating...but that is, after all, Morrissey in a nutshell....

Im the same ...loved the smiths when younger...only listen to them occasionally now...Still formative part of my childhood!!!

I want to read if he really tells why THE SMITHS broke up...I know he had shit with the bass player and drummer (he only considered them backing musicians..even thought they toured and recorded as a four piece...obviously Morrissey and Marr did the writing though)

Morrissey is just hanging out with Pamela Anderson in his new video, no big deal.
