Morrissey's Autobiography: The Lost Tome Found - thequietus.com

David Stubbs finds the 21st-century's greatest work of "non-fiction" in a skip. We can unveil it exclusively here - thequietus.com

Penguin Books recently announced that their planned publication of Morrissey's autobiography had been abandoned at the last minute, due to a difference of opinion with the author over the content. It is unclear what led to the contretemps, which has meant that no review copies of the long-awaited volume were printed. However, it seems that one sample copy was printed up for Morrissey's final inspection. It was thought to have been lost forever. However, Quietus contributor David Stubbs, while out cycling in the capital, caught side of a volume bearing the image of the former Smiths frontman, protruding from a skip next to Penguin HQ. Stubbs says he was struck by way the volume had clearly been “flung into the skip in a state of high dudgeon”, and immediately realised that this was Morrissey's own, discarded copy. We are proud, therefore, to bring you extracts from what might otherwise have been a lost scroll in the world of pop letters – the Morrissey autobiography they did not want you to read....

Ugh. Morrissey's voice is the easiest in the world to mock, but one of the hardest to mock well. A fact every kooky long-time poster here knows by heart; wish they'd told Mr. The Quietus.
