Excerpt:

Morrissey's much-anticipated Autobiography (Penguin Classics) has become one of the fastest-selling memoirs since official sales records began.

The £8.99 paperback publication sold 34,918 copies in the UK last week—the biggest first-week sale from a memoir since Kate McCann's Madeleine (Bantam Press) sold 72,500 copies in its opening week in May 2011.

Autobiography's sale is the biggest first-week sale from a musician's memoir since official sales records began in 1998, beating previous record holder Keith Richards' Life (Weidenfeld). The latter sold 28,213 copies in its opening week back in October 2010.

Morrissey débuts at number one in the Official UK Top 50, relegating Helen Fielding's new Bridget Jones novel, Mad About the Boy (Cape, 32,172 copies sold), into second place.
