Morrissey Autobiography to Be Published in U.S.
By JULIE BOSMAN
Published: October 29, 2013
The autobiography of the pop star Morrissey, which has become a quick sensation in Britain, has found an American publisher. G. P. Putnam’s Sons, an imprint of Penguin Random House, acquired the memoir, the publisher said on Tuesday.
The 457-page book, simply titled “Autobiography,” has become a bestseller in Britain, where it was released two weeks ago, and several publishers in the United States were engaged in a fierce auction for the American rights last week.
Putnam, whicht has published Tom Clancy, A. Scott Berg and Nora Roberts, got word on Friday that it had won the auction, said Ivan Held, the president of Putnam. “We were thrilled,” Mr. Held said on Tuesday.
