Well it looks like everyone’s favorite witty, bon-mot hurling, ironic/iconic pop star has finished his autobiography. Morrissey‘s–three year in the making- memoir is finished. It’s apparently a huge book coming in at some 660 pages.

Just what is going to be in this book? Vegan Recipes? Tales of hot hookups with groupies. Celibate fireside chats with fans? Mean poems about Margaret Thatcher?

I am a card-caring, angst-ridden Morrissey/Smiths fan from back in the day, so whatever the bio contains, I will be first in line to get a copy of this book.

“I’m really not that interesting, so I don’t know why I’ve written so much,” Morrissey stated in an interview with BBC Radio 4′s Front Row.  “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….”

No Morrissey, 660 pages is not too much– not for you.  You are that interesting. The memoir is the perfect forum to turn sad self-pity into high art, and you sir are the undisputed master of  turning melancholy coal into little polished diamonds. It is why we all love you!
