    Official "List of the Lost" press release

    to be published by Penguin Books on 24 September 2015 at £7.99

    Penguin Books is delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of List of the Lost, Morrissey’s extraordinary novel, on 24 September.

    ‘Beware of the novelist … intimate and indiscreet … pompous, prophetic airs … here is the fact of the fiction … an American tale where, naturally, evil conquers good, and none live happily ever after, for the complicated pangs of the empty experiences of flesh-and-blood human figures are the reasons why nothing can ever be enough. To read a book is to let a root sink down. List of the lost is the reality of what is true battling against what is permitted to be true’ – Morrissey

    Morrissey’s record-breaking bestseller, Autobiography, was published by Penguin Classics in October 2013.




    Penguin UK have announced the release date (Sept. 24) and revealed the cover art. Still no page on their website for the book or any further information as far as I can tell.

      He should put out an accompanying album (like a soundtrack) to accompany the novel. Maybe this novel is based on the song "Forgive Someone", theme-wise that is.

      I can't wait for regular book chart position statements even if it charts poorly

      Looks a bit too gay for my taste. Wouldn't really want it on my book shelf.

      Official "List of the Lost" press release

      We've seen the cover art, and now Penguin UK has sent out a press release about "List of the Lost". Here's what it says:


      List of the Lost

      lol at the comment further down in the uncleskinny link: "I’m a picture researcher at Penguin Books in the UK and would like to know if you have any larger versions of the Earl Young photo which is captioned ‘Earl Young anchors ACU to an upset of heavily favored Villanova University at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Pa.’

      We are interested in using this on the cover of a book and I’m unable to locate the original or who owns the copyright.

      Reminds me of Morrissey's quote: "The 100 metres was my raison d'etre" which I illustrated for my Tales of The Smiths graphic biography (published by Omnibus Press in Autumn).

      You can read that specific episode here:

      Oh, come on! You can wait, and you will wait, and you will pre-order, and you will devour, and you (whether you actually enjoy the book or not) will be one of the first to post negative shit on here. You have no life. You have literally nothing to do but loiter on this forum and comment on absolute everything. You are deeply boring. You make no valuable contribution to goings-on here, and I imagine the same is true in your "real" life.

      And "Ben/Benny" is a fucking ridiculous name for a grown man.

      Turn your laptop off, make yourself a cheese toastie, have a glass of milk and think about what you're doing. Constantly commenting on the comings and goings of a singer you obviously love, but pretend to hate? What is wrong with you?

      After seeing the artwork and reading some of the plot, I wish this ealier quote were true:

      "A tale of hunchbacked hermaphroditic conjoined twins with great hair, who sing sad songs in a seaside sideshow, one of whom decides to get surgically separated against the other's wishes and plays guitar with Modest Moose?"

      This cover is fantastic! It's like a vintage Penguin book and it's got a Smiths-esque image :)

      At the risk of stating the bleedin' obvious, those are very Morrissey-esque features.

      UPDATE 1:42 p.m.: A press release circulating today also has some notes penned by Morrissey, and they read: “Beware of the novelist … intimate and indiscreet … pompous, prophetic airs … here is the fact of the fiction … an American tale where, naturally, evil conquers good, and none live happily ever after, for the complicated pangs of the empty experiences of flesh-and-blood human figures are the reasons why nothing can ever be enough.

      How is this gay having a runner on the cover? Morrissey was a runner.

      Why is he putting a blood American on the cover? I mean shouldn't the cover be a famous Brit kickball player like Nigel Higginsbottom III?

      I guess he has been reading Jeremy's faxes from Morrissey Marketing HQ in Malibu, the guy in second place is black. Anonymous-

      It's an 'American tale'.
