Description

Autobiography Steven Patrick Morrissey was born in Manchester on May 22nd 1959. Singer-songwriter and co-founder of the Smiths (1982-1987), Morrissey has been a solo artist for twenty-six years, during which time he has had three number 1 albums in England in three different decades.

Achieving eleven Top 10 albums (plus nine with the Smiths), his songs have been recorded by David Bowie, Nancy Sinatra, Marianne Faithfull, Chrissie Hynde, Thelma Houston, My Chemical Romance and Christy Moore, amongst others.

An animal protectionist, in 2006 Morrissey was voted the second greatest living British icon by viewers of the BBC, losing out to Sir David Attenborough. In 2007 Morrissey was voted the greatest northern male, past or present, in a nationwide newspaper poll. In 2012, Morrissey was awarded the Keys to the City of Tel-Aviv.

It has been said 'Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status that Morrissey has reached in his lifetime.'

Autobiography covers Morrissey's life from his birth until the present day.

'The Best Music Biog Ever ... In the world of rock autobiographies, Morrissey's is nigh-on perfect'

    One star for cheek and teaching me a new word, Hagiography. Morrissey overtly disabuses himself on one page whilst blaming others for all his woes on the next, or even on the same page. Verbal diarrhoea from a paranoid, egotistical, verbose, megalomaniac. This effort was disjointed and boring. Even most of the name dropping was of second rate nonentities. I really regret the weeks of wasted time it took to persevere with this illiterate drivel for discussion at my Book Club: or I really would have given up after the first chapter, had there been one.He purports to be a socialist, I think! Yet he crudely describes the working class as "sewer rats" and adds insult to injury by bringing scoliosis into the description as if it was a choice or even accurate. So much for tolerance and political correctness. He wallows in self pity about the upbringing and schooling that was so much better than that of our parents and grandparents. A perfect example of "the world owes me a living" mentality of this generation who lived through the Thatcher years. I want my life back.

    Saw the Smiths In Leeds when I was 14 and here I am reading Morrisey's autobiography at 45. I feel like I have known him my whole life and though I was a rabid fan when younger haven't really listened that much in recent years. Having read this book I have gone back and re bought all the old favorites, though to be honest it's hard to listen to something that you last listened to when you were studying for A levels. Read the book, there's good and bad in him like everyone but the world would be a duller place without him.

    and quiet disappointing. Yes, I'm a fan of Moz and The Smiths, but found the book very grating at times.
  • A good read

    A must for any fan. A very honest book and interesting to say the least. Am only a recent fan and this was a great insight into his life. Morrisey is one of a kind shall we say.
  • He's a wonderful writer

    The world’s biggest narcissist and self-loving egomaniac whinges about how hard he had it. Heaven know’s he’s miserable and yet manages to continue as a diva extra-ordinaire. Penguin classic - how to to devalue a publishing house in one go.

    Trudging slowly over wet sand, back to the beginnings of Mancunian Moz. A tortured soul, racked by life's unfair judgements. Death, misery and betrayal flow throughout. His words say everything to me about his life. His songs a reflection of his troubled life. Misery and misfortune adding a joyful theme to his songwriting genius. Magnetic, energetic, even pathetic at times. Never has one's life provided such majestic material for the lyricist. Despair not, a world without Morrissey would be a darker place. You will not laugh, but you will understand. The only disappointment is that it ended. Dean
