Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Practically every paragraph has a line or two that demands to be read aloud to the mirror, tattooed on foreheads, carved on tombstones.” –Rolling Stone

“Morrissey is a pop star of unusual writing talent.” –The New York Times

Autobiography covers Morrissey's life from his birth until the present day.

Review:

“As I floated, unmoored, Morrissey would drop in a single masterfully executed sentence. He's a writer with a gift that he bends to bizarre use.” Sasha Frere-Jones, The New Yorker

Review:

“[Morrissey] is at his very best as he conveys what it was, and is, to be a youth lifted free by the sense of possibilities glimpsed in pop music and films and TV and poetry. He also writes as though he has a clear sense that Autobiography could provide the same kind of beacon, the same kind of life raft, for its most impressionable readers as he found in others. And that's exactly how he should write, for one of the main reasons Morrissey matters as he does is because he has always been that kind of artist.” GQ

Review:

“Rancorous, rhapsodic, schizophrenic: Autobiography delivers a man in full.” Andrew Male, Mojo

Review:

“A wonderfully entertaining read.” Daily Mirror

Review:

“Morrissey's Autobiography is brilliant and relentless. Genius, really.” Douglas Coupland

Review:

“This is the best book ever. Like ever.” Wonderland 

Review:

“The Best Music Biog Ever....In the world of rock autobiographies, Morrissey's is nigh-on perfect.” NME

About the Author

Steven Patrick Morrissey was born in Manchester on May 22nd 1959. Singer-songwriter and co-founder of the Smiths (1982-1987), Morrissey has been a solo artist for twenty-six years, during which time he has had three number 1 albums in England in three different decades.

Achieving eleven Top 10 albums (plus nine with the Smiths), his songs have been recorded by David Bowie, Nancy Sinatra, Marianne Faithfull, Chrissie Hynde, Thelma Houston, My Chemical Romance and Christy Moore, amongst others.

An animal protectionist, in 2006 Morrissey was voted the second greatest living British icon by viewers of the BBC, losing out to Sir David Attenborough. In 2007 Morrissey was voted the greatest northern male, past or present, in a nationwide newspaper poll. In 2012, Morrissey was awarded the Keys to the City of Tel-Aviv.

It has been said "Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status that Morrissey has reached in his lifetime."
