Morrissey Wants Autobiography Published As A Contemporary Classic

(Gibson) With news breaking that The Smiths story will soon be told by both singer Morrissey and guitarist Johnny Marr in separate autobiographies, Penguin have said they are interested in Morrissey's book.

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
