I'm a bit displeased with the notion that Morrissey himself didn't do his own audio-book. While judging from the soundclound clip, it appears the Guv'nor, oops, I mean David Morrissey did a fine job; I feel Moz would have doubled or tripled sales had he have done the audio himself. just saying that from a marketing point of view.

One doesn't have a dog and bark onself now, does one? If Morrissey had read it I feel the very personal reading and intonation would have given away more than the raw words themselves.

I really like it ! he has a relaxing voice and the poetry of the words is more defined when spoken ... think the first half of the book is the best bit anyway , so maybe the 50 pages of bitching and bile may not sound quite so eloquent .

Listened to a clip, and not a fan. While I love David Morrissey and I think he has a great voice, I don't think autobiographies should be recorded by anyone other than the author. It just takes me completely out of it when I hear someone saying "I did this bla bla" and you know very well the person reading it did not do that. Morrissey should have just recorded it himself, it's not like he's recording much else these days.

Oh well...enough said
On Penguinclassics.co.uk it still says ....."this book is not yet published..."

Morrissey's autobiography is getting a hardback gift edition with full discography?

I was reading the Johnny interview on Pitchfork and they mention that there is going to be a "autobiography, hardback gift edition with full discography. Does anyone have more info about that? Sounds like it could be really cool but every time something like this happens "Paint a Vulgar Picture" starts playing in my head.. This is a copy and a link to the article.

""Meanwhile, Morrissey's autobiography is getting a hardback gift edition, according to official fansite True to You. Available December 5 through Penguin Classics, it'll be in full color with a bunch of new photos, accompanied by a complete Morrissey discography. It'll also have a different cover.""

Also, the interview with Johnny is worth a read, apparently he's also putting out a book..

The full discography is a 'listing' in the hardcover edition which was not in the paperback. It is not the actual physical discography (music).

Chuffed to have just taken delivery of my CD audio book of Autobiography today :) Sad though that there is not even a single info sheet included in the box, just the 11 CD's, looks a bit naked :lbf:
