By Robbie Daw for Billboard.

Excerpt:

"HE CHANNELED HIS FAVORITE SONGWRITERS.

“I often reference someone like Morrissey when I’m writing about relationships because he looks at love from such a peculiar angle. Who else writes a lyric like, ‘The more you ignore me, the closer I get’? You just go, ‘Oh, my God -- is this guy reading my mind?’ For me, I’m always looking at lyricists like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell. Morrissey I would put in that category, though some people may balk at that. And Marc Bolan as well. He was one of the great surrealists.”

References to Morrissey and The Smiths abound in contemporary literature. Here's a recent one, a book called Now My Heart Is Full, by Laura June, published by Penguin this year:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36597098-now-my-heart-is-full

At the Goodreads page, the author has given a Morrissey-esque review of her own book:

"Riddled with flaws but look I did my best."

The title is not a coincidence, as the author confesses on Tumblr:

Has anybody here read it? Any good?
