John Crace's satirical Digested read columns have become a Guardian institution, reducing the most newsworthy books of the year to an essential 600 words.

Here, he takes on Morrissey, whose hotly anticipated Autobiography was published as a Penguin Classic this autumn and has gone on to become one of the publishing successes of the year.

Longtime fan Will Woodward and Guardian culture editor Caspar Llewellyn Smith discuss whether Morrissey's prose is a deathless as his music, and wonder just what sort of phenomenon he has become.

"For the last 25 years and 25 nights have I roamed the deserts of London and LA doing my best to appear enigmatic and then complaining that no one understands me."

Ouch.
