The long-in-the-works autobiography that Morrissey talked about
having more or less finished in early 2011 – entitled, naturally, Autobiography
– was due for publication in the UK this week through Penguin, with bookshops across the country whipping their Truman Capote sections
back into shape for the Mozmoir’s 16 September arrival. As
Morrissey fans (edited for redundancy) no doubt noticed, however, Monday came and went with nary a swoon nor a shoplift.
