Morrissey Finishes Memoir

Indie-rock innovator Morrissey has reportedly completed writing a 600-plus page memoir, and has asked Penguin Books to publish the book as part of its "Classics" series, even though the series generally includes reissues of literary classics.  In response to the news, a spokeswoman for Penguin told the Independent:  "There is a natural fit between Morrissey's sensibility, his artistic achievements and Penguin Classics. [His] book could be published as a Penguin Classic because it is a classic in the making.

Before speaking to Penguin about publishing the book, the former frontman of The Smiths told Front Row he wondereed if anybody would even want to read his memoir.  "I'm really not that interesting, so I don't know why I've written so much," Morrissey said.  "I have been through the whole life. I just wonder if 660 pages are too much for people to bear. And then I sit down and think, well, are six pages too much for people to bear? I really don't know. [It's] baffling."

The singer hopes to have the book instores early next year.
