Morrissey is the most infuriating, arrogant, self pitying drama queen you will ever come across, and he rules so hard This book is a train wreck, it has no organization no chapters , the first paragraph is about ten pages long, there are tons of references to his own songs, tons of hokey alliteration, his command of Mexican American slang is just pitiful, he suddenly, and frequently goes off on tangents totally unrelated to what he s talking about at any certain point like, for example, he ll ju [...]

oh, moz.lol Morrissey, though, didn t have to attain the chip of being needily undervalued he was born with it He tells us he ditched Steve , his given name, to be known by his portentous unimoniker because deep reverential breath here great classical composers only have one name Mussorgsky, Mozart, Morrissey.His most pooterishly embarrassing piece of intellectual social climbing is having this autobiography published by Penguin Classics Not Modern Classics, you understand, where the authors can [...]

From nowhere comes the California cobra chords of Run run run by Jo Jo Gunne and Heaven must have sent you by the Elgins wide variables on an open pitch, all adapting to different listeners the well and the ill All of this starts me, and I cannot stop If I can barely speak which is true , then I shall surely sing.The fields run to the edges of the pages, gilted leaves tucked as a mark between to say, to someone anyone this is still happening Haircuts bob up and down in television seas They are b [...]


Daniel

Whatever is sung is the case The first hundred or so pages of Autobiography are poetry of a kind and Morrissey is at his captivating best when setting the scenes of his youth, or when pouring over the beauty in the art of others they read as the greatest of once unpublished reviews Particularly affecting is his recounting of loss and death Those who own part of his heart falling to time and chance, and his expressed pain moved me in a way unexpected of so few words but, like a poet, isn t that h [...]


Arhondi

I would never think that I would rate a book written by my teenage idol, Morrissey, with just 2 stars, but it s true He clearly does know how to write a sentence and his vocabulary is than fancy and surely enough, can put a lot of English people digging up their dictionaries He does know his British culture However, his self absorbed side gets the best of him That being said, I take it only as an aspect of his well crafted persona, that he has struggled to create since he was a young boy and is [...]


MJ Nicholls

A late bloomer Smiths fan, obsessed with heirs Belle Sebastian, still teenage enough for the songs to resonate, mature enough for them not to mean the whole world And then a later blooming solo Moz fan, immature enough for the songs to resonate, mature enough to recognise a fading in artistry The autobio is another stellar achievement in which scores are settled, scabs are picked and re swabbed, revenge and forgiveness are dispensed where appropriate, the Smiths court case is depicted as a dark [...]


Lucy Banks

I actually read this book a while back and decided today would be the day to leave a review.Firstly, a disclaimer I am a die hard Smiths fan So much so, that I actually have a tattoo of Morrissey s face on my left calf So, it s probably not a surprise to see that I rate this book highly However, just to clarify, had the book been appalling, I wouldn t have See, I may love the great man himself, but I am also able to be objective Ahem Anyway it s a fabulously entertaining book Morrissey proves hi [...]


Matt

PENGUIN BOOKS So Moz, can you give us an idea of what your proposed autobiography will be like MORRISSEY A Manchester childhood of misery upon melancholy upon misfortune, devoid of glamor, absent any hint of human kindness or scrap of salvation save the New York Dolls and Ziggy Stardust unfit for occupations of any sort with death at every door in a society where molesting children is fit for barristers and barons but animals are abused without mercy so I stood up and left Nancy Sinatra at the t [...]


Michael

It has been some considerable time since I have hated a book as much as this one, as is evidenced by the amount of time it took me to finish it.It starts off promisingly enough, with a colourful description of the Manchester of Morrissey s childhood, and some accounts of the television programmes, music and poets that inspired him That first 20% of the book was actually pretty good it clearly was the section of the book that he spent the most time on, and it was interesting to read his influence [...]


Michaela

STOP PRESS MORRISSEY IS A CANTANKEROUS OLD GRUMP SHOCKER This is not news to anyone Neither is the fact that he is hilarious, likes liked poetry, or holds a grudge longer than anyone on earth Yet, from reviews I ve read of Autobiography, this appears to be a revelation Let s face it You know what you re getting with Morrissey Of course it s narcissistic plus it s a flippin autobiography who s it going to be about The surprise is that the book isn t cohesive It s a book of two halves The first pa [...]


Tosh

A great memoir needs a strong character who writes, and Morrissey takes that role to the maximum Overall each page has a quotable sentence or two, and the way he constructs his sentences is a beauty in form The narrative is not important but its the way he tells the tale, and that he does very well A long time fan or student of Morrissey will not learn anything new He does get personal in his own way regarding his love life, which is vague, but one is allowed to connect the dots There are people [...]


Antonomasia

The beginning of Autobiography made me notice how much I d changed in the 15 or so months between the book s release and getting round to reading the thing In late 2013 I was still entrenched in ideas from psychology that I d read 3 5 years earlier and was judgemental with it albeit less so out loud Though becoming less judgemental was also related to one branch of that, as the person centred process gradually worked its magic I had found Morrissey s writing at the beginning of the book eloquent [...]


James

A good chunk of this is great Well written, insightful, throws up some interesting historical personal context for Morrissey s creative work, and accurately reflects his presumed personality The fact that he continues a despairing attitude from the description of his younger years right through the lifetime of The Smiths is understandable, and the in depth analysis of the music important to him growing up points to why he would so obsessively note down every chart position of his career.However, [...]


Anna Kļaviņa

I m fan of Morrissey and The Smiths however I m not much into celebrity personal life and so I knew next to nothing about him or the band before reading this book But, of course, I d heard of Morrissey being self centred and arrogant prick but while reading and googling a lot, I come to conclusion that s bullshit And now, I how to say that after reading his autobiography, I ve found him likeable and all kind of awesome human being And he can write I expected it to be bleak read and while sometim [...]


Amar Pai

zzzzzzzzz skimming thru this with alacrity it s not like I was expecting Life by Keith Richards but come on moz, you re gonna spend half the book moaning about how much school sucked I could take it in song Beligerent ghouls run Manchester schools but the saving grace of the smiths was morrissey s sense of humor , which is nowhere to be found in this autobio just page after page of dour pseudo literary posturing about Manchester, Oscar Wilde, etc so boring now I know how Joan of arc felt


martha

Like a great number of people who have read this book, I am a long time and ardent Smiths Morrissey fan I had been waiting for this book to be published even before I knew there would actually ever be one With that said, there were a lot of things I liked about it, but also some which I didn t care for.I once read an interview with Morrissey where he said that everything people needed to know about him was already in his songs, after reading Autobiography I truly believe it now.They are definite [...]


Laurie

I was going to write a grand, illuminating review of Mozzer s book, but alas I just cannot gather my thoughts cohesively enough to do justice Therefore, these are my disjointed thoughts and quotes that spoke to me This book is a treasure trove of music and film references I found myself making playlists from the get go It s fun to hear and see what has inspired and continues to inspire Morrissey From the very first page this was one of the most brilliantly written books I ve ever read It sounds [...]


Tim

As a long time Smiths Morrissey fan I was excited to get my hands on this book, and largely it doesn t disappoint I would go so far as to say that this is one of the most incredible books I have ever read It s not your typical autobiography, so much so that for the first page or so it completely threw me The account of his early years and the rise of The Smiths are full of sadness, wit, tenderness and betrayal His description of his school days, and the vile bullying teachers of St Mary s, is pa [...]


Karina

Deserts of boredom dripped by, thinly disguised as years That s my favourite line so far, one among many in this fascinating insight into the mind of one of pop s greatest icons It should come as no surprise to those of us who followed his latter career that the author s writing is as inspired as his lyrical inventiveness was in his earlier incarnation as lead singer for the Smiths Quite how he came by this impressive command of the language is unclear, given the oppressive nature of his schooli [...]


Brian

Morrissey s long ish autobiography is at its best when he is writing about the things he is most enthusiastic about his teenage love of the New York Dolls, David Bowie, T Rex, Jobraith, the Sex Pistols, and the Ramones his best friendships his fans the musical output of The Smiths When he is a critic his bleak upbringing in Manchester the litigious entanglements of The Post Smiths NME , he becomes insufferable mostly because he is long winded in these sections , though his criticisms aren t tota [...]


Robert

Moz s autobiography is exactly what I expected sarcastic , quotable though he is a better songwriter and full of hatred for his ex label , bandmates and critics It s not too insightful there s Johnny Rogan s bio for that but there s an entertainment factor HOWEVER what sort of ruins this from being a thoroughly enjoyable read is that there are way too many digressions and events are presented haphazardly I wouldn t call it a classic but it s something a diehard Smiths fan should check out.


Lara

Oh, Morrissey I loved you, deeply, in high school and college I still dig your music, but cannot force myself to plod through your book Sorry, dude.


Lord Beardsley

Oh sheesh, y all Not since reading Me Talk Pretty One Day have I laughed as much as I did whilst reading this 457 page opus Nonstop LOLS This is 100% hardcore, uncut, Morrissey bitching about ingratitude, loathing, meat eaters, and various other things he hates If you can t handle the HeAT e ok i tried, then get out of the angry vegetarian kitchen But if you re like me, and you love bitchery which autocorrect just changed to butchery oh the irony , walls of text, and unhealthy obsessions with de [...]


Tracy Reilly

Of course Morrissey is a great writer he is a great songwriter, and the types of songs he writes lend themselves into expansion into prose.He is great on multiple levels clarity of thought, complexity of idea, and fun play with words Perspective More on that later He becomes a great writer in the same conventional way most writers become good by being well read and emulating the saints of literature Moz s favorite is quite obviously Oscar Wilde, as he practically imitates him to illness, plus ad [...]


Arthur Graham

I think I ll hold off on reading Moz s bitter, self indulgent, precious little memoir a bit longer, and I ll keep listening to all of his bitter, self indulgent, precious little songs instead There s A Place In Hell For Me And My FriendsYou re Gonna Need Someone on Your SideLet the Right One Slip InWe Hate It When Our Friends Become SuccessfulNobody Loves UsBoy RacerInteresting DrugBoxersFirst of the Gang to DieI m Not SorryAll You Need is MeSing Your LifeWe ll Let You KnowLast of the Famous Int [...]


Davidg

Imagine the story of The Smiths written as a bad novel narrated by a whining teenager a sub sub sub Catcher in the Rye And here it is.It takes several pages for the idea of paragraphs to take hold but even then they can start talking of one thing and end up being about something else No wonder he has no idea of splitting the books into chapters.Everyone who doesn t fall into raptures at the sight of our whinging hero is immediately branded as some hopeless loser So, every teacher, EVERY single t [...]


Stefan Garcia

I have just read this book in a day, after a London friend sent it to me here in South America Having listened to the naysayers on the BBC beforehand, I was not expecting much in terms of style and substance, but I knew that regardless I would enjoy this book because snippets of his voice interviews have me in ecstatic paroxysms A whole book I cried myself into nirvana so often That s what his words do to me.To love is the fact that he writes like a dream, an exhilarating nightmare really, full [...]
