Morrissey's 'Autobiography' Reportedly Gets October Publication Date

Morrissey's 'Autobiography' Reportedly Gets October Publication Date
Last month, some rather confusing reports circulated regarding an apparent conflict between iconic spoilsport Morrissey and publisher Penguin regarding the singer's Autobiography. Now, a posting on semi-official Moz website True to You reports that the book will arrive this month.

Autobiography will apparently hit shelves on October 17 through Penguin Classics. It will also be available as an e-book. A press release adds that Penguin "will publish in the UK & Commonwealth and Europe." In other words, it doesn't look as if Morrissey has landed a North American deal just yet.

The former Smiths singer has been talking about releasing a memoir for a number of years. It should be an interesting read, considering his opinionated views on animal rights and politics, not to mention his frequent illnesses and tendency to stir up controversy with inflammatory statements.

It's worth pointing out that Penguin's website still doesn't appear to make any mention of the book, although unofficial fan site Morrissey-Solo reports that full confirmation from Penguin is expected within 24 hours.
