Penguin Books May Be Back on Board to Release Morrissey Autobiography

Not a single page of Morrissey’s long-awaited autobiography has been released, yet the plot surrounding the former Smiths frontman continues to thicken. A clarification has been added to the statement that Morrissey fan site True to You released last week, which had originally claimed that Morrissey: Autobiography would not be published with Penguin Books and would henceforth stay unprinted until the singer found a new publisher. Though this initial statement has not been retracted, an update on the website now states that the publishing agreement with Penguin remains intact for the U.K. and Europe.

The new statement doesn’t explain what caused the book’s release date to be pushed back, nor does it provide any added details on which publisher might help bring the book to the rest of the globe. We don’t have a new, official release date available yet, though the statement says that “Morrissey and Penguin remain determined to publish within the next few weeks.”
