Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hear Morrissey Roar! Morrissey's "Autobiography" is a very witty, intellectual, urbane read. A must-have for any Smiths' fans. The book delves into his childhood and the genesis of the band and his solo effort. There is a bit too much time spent on his court case concerning royalties with his ex-band members. Alas, he may have an axe to grind. That being said, it was a very entertaining read. Looking forward to his novel which is said to be in the works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review I think that the last chapters were not as interesting as the rest of the book yet this book is a very enjoyable read. Self indulgent? Yes, but full of strange and beautifully written witty lines.
