I just finished reading Billy Budd; I thought it was preety intresting, and I can understand Morrissey's allusion to it in the song by the same name. I was wondering if any one else has read? Also, I am wondering what they think about it. In addition, I read Brighton Rock--Morrissey stills several name from the book and uses them and one of my favorite songs, Now my heart is full. This book seemed just a wondeful piece of pulp, and I am wondering what people think about it, too? Finally, does anyone else know what other books Morrissey alludes to or simply enjoys--beside the obvious Oscar Wilde stuff.
