Does Morrissey enjoy this book?


you should see mine
I heard he's very fond of By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept by Elizabeth Smart. And The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall (apparently one of his favorite authors). Oh and The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry.

He probably does because the man has good taste, and Pessoa is a fascinating writer! I just wonder f it is as good in english as it is in portuguese...

Look it was posted on the news on 2004, good you brought it up cause I didnt know.
I never liked Pessoa but it feels good to see we both love Un Chant d'Amour

thanks for the links. I'm absorbed in the book now. It's immensely depressing because of how brutally honest he writes, and how well he explains what I've always felt was unexplainable in my f***ed up head. Yet, at the same time I feel awkwardly relieved for some reason. I feel like he gives a "f*** it all, I'm forever doomed-let me enjoy what I can" attitude....and in many ways thats all I need to get up in the morning!


Call me morbid.
'By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept' he must be quite fond of as he references it numerous times.

"...louder than bombs or screams or the inside ticking of remorse..."
"rocks below could promise certain death."
"...reel around the cafe."

My secret's my enzyme.
I read somewhere that Morrissey really, really loved the book A Girl Named Zippy. I'm serious.
