Morrissey Wants Autobiography Published As A Contemporary Classic
The famed literary publishers will offer serious money for Morrissey's book, which pleases the singer greatly. According to The Independent newspaper he told BBC Radio 4: "I'd like it to go to Penguin, but only if they published it as a Classic. I can't see why not – a contemporary Penguin Classic. When you consider what really hits print these days and when you look at the autobiographies and how they are sold, most of it is appalling. It's a publishing event, not a literary event."
A Penguin spokesperson told The Independent, "There is a natural fit between Morrissey's sensibility, his artistic achievements and Penguin Classics. A book could be published as a Penguin Classic because it is a classic in the making. It's something we would like to discuss with Morrissey." more on this story
