Morrissey has always had a gift with wordplay and storytelling, so it was probably only a matter of time before he actually released a novel. After releasing the album World Peace is None of Your Business last year, Moz has announced plans to release his debut novel, List of the Lost (which follows another massive Morrissey tome, 2013’s Autobiography). Morrissey fansite True to You has revealed the book’s cover art, which you can see above. The site also announced that the book will be released on softcover/paperback on September 24, via Penguin Books. For now, the book only has a release date in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Something tells us that American Morrissey fans will find a way to get their hands on a copy, however.
Morrissey is one of the artists included in our FYF Fest 2015 report.
