Reviews

Practically every paragraph has a line or two that demands to be read aloud to the mirror, tattooed on foreheads, carved on tombstones. Rob Sheffield, " Rolling Stone" Morrissey is a pop star of unusual writing talent. "The New York Times" As I floated, unmoored, Morrissey would drop in a single masterfully executed sentence. He s a writer with a gift that he bends to bizarre use. Sasha Frere-Jones, "The New Yorker" [Morrissey] is at his very best as he conveys what it was, and is, to be a youth lifted free by the sense of possibilities glimpsed in pop music and films and TV and poetry. He also writes as though he has a clear sense that Autobiography could provide the same kind of beacon, the same kind of life raft, for its most impressionable readers as he found in others. And that s exactly how he should write, for one of the main reasons Morrissey matters as he does is because he has always been that kind of artist. "GQ" Rancorous, rhapsodic, schizophrenic: Autobiography delivers a man in full Andrew Male, "Mojo" A wonderfully entertaining read. "Daily Mirror" Morrissey's Autobiography is brilliant and relentless. Genius, really. Douglas Coupland This is the best book ever. Like ever. "Wonderland" The Best Music Biog Ever ... In the world of rock autobiographies, Morrissey's is nigh-on perfect. "NME""
