The publication of Morrissey’s autobiography this fall has been a major event in both the musical and literary worlds, and for those who’ve yet to pick up the aptly titled “Autobiography,” now’s your chance: Publisher G.P. Putnam’s Sons has given us 5 copies of the U.S. hardcover edition to give away to Slicing Up Eyeballs readers.
Perhaps now we know why The Governor has yet to re-appear on the new season of “The Walking Dead”: Actor David Morrissey, who portrays the power-mad villain on the AMC zombie series, is the voice behind the unabridged audiobook of Morrissey’s “Autobiography,” the singer revealed late Sunday.
Morrissey may have bemoaned he had no U.S. publisher for his just-released autobiography — cleverly titled “Autobiography” — but that’s no longer the case. The singer announced today that G.P. Putnam’s Sons, a division of his U.K. publisher Penguin, will put the best-seller out in the U.S. on Dec. 3.
Morrissey long has been coy about his sexuality, which is why the publication of his autobiography this past week generated a flurry of headlines about its revelation of a relationship with another man during the 1990s — reports that apparently have led the former Smiths frontman to proclaim he’s not gay, but, rather, “humasexual.”
After much handwringing, it’s official: Morrissey’s autobiography — cleverly titled “Autobiography” — will be published Oct. 17 in the U.K. and Europe by Penguin Classics, the publisher has confirmed, announcing that the 480-page paperback will cover the singer’s “life from his birth until the present day.”
Morrissey’s long-in-the-works autobiography — titled, appropriately, “Autobiography” — was set to be published next week, but the singer claims a last-minute and heretofore unexplained “content disagreement” with Penguin Classics “has caused the venture to collapse,” leaving the former Smiths frontman in search of a new publisher.
