"Now My Heart Is Full" by Laura June - another literary Morrissey reference

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:

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?

Just downloaded it.
Cursory search - zero Morrissey mentions.
The Smiths mentioned once.
Will read it fully soon and report back.

FWD.

If any future authors are reading this, a good name for a villain of a book is Joyce Michaels. Feel free to use it.
