Morrissey's autobiography reportedly pulled from publication

Morrissey's forthcoming autobiography has reportedly been pulled days before publication.

According to a post on Morrissey fansite, True To You, the book - titled Autobiography - was due for publication in the UK this coming Monday [September 16].

However, the post continues, "a last-minute content disagreement between Penguin Books and Morrissey has caused the venture to collapse. No review copies were printed, and Morrissey is now in search of a new publisher."

An extract from the book - an essay, entitled 'The Bleak Moor Lies' - appeared in The Dark Monarch: Magic And Modernity In British Art, published to coincide with an exhibition at Tate St Ives in 2009/2010. Edited by Michael Bracewell, Martin Clark and Alun Rowlands, the book also includes contributions from Jon Savage and Damien Hirst. You can read the essay here.

There has been no official word from either Morrissey or Penguin Books.
