Morrissey’s Autobiography Coming Out In ‘Next Few Weeks’

Despite earlier reports to the contrary, Morrissey’s long-awaited autobiography, apparently titled ‘Autobiography,’ will be released “within the next few weeks,” according to the singer’s website. The news follows a post last week in which the former Smiths frontman cited a “content disagreement” with publisher Penguin Books as the reason the “classic in the making” — to quote the pompadoured one himself — would not see the light of day.

Unfortunately, Morrissey’s on-again deal with Penguin only holds for the U.K. and Europe, and he “has no contract with a publisher for the U.S. or any other territory.” That means American Smiths and Moz fanatics will have to either special order hard copies of this sure-to-be-salacious tome or find ways to grab it digitally.

As the NME reports, Morrissey finished his autobiography back in 2011, and even though he wanted the book to come out on Penguin Classics — an imprint generally reserved for, well, classics — he was typically self-deprecating as he described the editing process.

“I’ve been through the whole life in many ways and I just wonder if 660 pages are too much for people to bear,” he said two years ago. “And then I sit down and think, well, are six pages too much for people to bear? I really don’t know. I’m trimming.”
