A Morrissey Memoir? Possibly Very Soon

If you’ve recently found yourself feeling upbeat and optimistic about life, Morrissey, the dour dauphin of rock, may soon put a stop to that: he has announced that he is working on his memoirs. In an interview with the BBC, Morrissey, the former Smiths frontman and symbol of romanticized depression, said he had begun writing an autobiography to communicate directly with his fans and to speak over the filter of the mainstream media. “With every printed interview, there’s lots of misquotes,” Morrissey told the BBC. “Lots of them are really silly and really extreme, which you have to live with the rest of your life. So it’s setting the record straight.” No publisher or release date for the as-yet-untitled memoir has been announced. Morrissey is also working on a new solo album, “Year of Refusal,” scheduled for next year. {via NY Times}
