Morrissey’s autobiography release to go ahead after all


Morrissey‘s autobiography will get a release in the UK and Europe through Penguin after all, according to a statement from the publishing company.

Last week, it appeared Morrissey: Autobiography might not see the light of day for some time after a ‘content dispute’ was flagged up as the reason for the book being pulled just days before it was due to hit the shelves.

“Although Morrissey’s Autobiography was set to be available throughout the UK on September 16th, a last-minute content disagreement between Penguin Books and Morrissey has caused the venture to collapse,” a short statement issued on fansite True To You revealed. “No review copies were printed, and Morrissey is now in search of a new publisher.”

However, Penguin has now said the book will in fact soon be out in the UK and Europe, but remains on hold in the US. “The publication of Morrissey’s Autobiography remains with Penguin Books,” the new True To You statement reads.

“This is a deal for the UK and Europe, but Morrissey has no contract with a publisher for the US or any other territory. As of September 13, Morrissey and Penguin (UK) remain determined to publish within the next few weeks.”
