Morrissey fans have been waiting patiently for his autobiography which has been in the works for more than a year. With a publishing date of Monday (at least in the UK), it looked like Mozzer’s acolytes would finally get to hear his side of the story.
Nope. Autobiography–that’s what it’s called–has been pulled by publisher Penguin at the last minute. A statement at the Mozzer-friendly blog True to You has this statement.
Although Morrissey’s Autobiography was set to be available throughout the UK on September 16th, a last-minute content disagreement between Penguin Books and Morrissey has caused the venture to collapse. No review copies were printed, and Morrissey is now in search of a new publisher.
This begs the question: what was the content that deep-sixed the project at the last second?
