NEW YORK -- The Morrissey memoir show will soon arrive in the U.S.
Penguin Random House announced Tuesday that its imprint G.P. Putnam's Sons will publish the hardcover of Morrissey's Autobiography on Dec. 3, while Penguin Classics will handle the paperback.
The book is a No. 1 bestseller in England.
British reviewers have been divided over the book by the Smiths' former frontman. Rock critic Neil McCormack gave it a five-star review in the Daily Telegraph, comparing it favourably to Bob Dylan's Chronicles. But the Independent's literary editor, Boyd Tonkin, writes that he tired of Morrissey's "droning narcissism" and "puerile litany of grievances."
