After shaking off the shackles of memory with his highly successful Autobiography two years ago, beloved necklace-wearer Steven Patrick Morrissey is set to release his debut novel next month. Let's just hope this time, his editor cut the 50+ pages worth of diatribes about lonely high court judges.
According to Moz mouthpiece True To You, the novel will be published by Penguin Books (UK)—the same publisher of Autobiography—at the end of September. Here's the listing:
Morrissey's first novel, List of the Lost, will be published by Penguin Books (UK) at the end of September. The book will be issued in softcover/paperback as a New Fiction title, and comes almost two years after Morrissey's very successful Autobiography publication of October 2013. Penguin Books will confirm an on sale date within this coming week. List of the Lost will be available in the UK, Ireland, Australia, India, New Zealand and South Africa.
No other details have been revealed yet, and just like with Autobiography—which came out months before a slightly sanitized version was released in America—there's no word on when it will come stateside. But from experience, I can tell you that if you order the book online from a British website, it'll come between two and eight weeks!
