A senior editor at publishing company Faber & Faber has appealed to Morrissey to let the company release his memoirs.
In an open letter to Morrissey onThethoughtfox.co.uk, Lee Brackstone said it would be a “publishing dream” for Faber & Faber to release the book, which the former Smiths singer is reportedly writing at the moment.
“I have been trying to persuade you of the virtues and wisdom of this for some years now. You probably won’t remember,” Brackstone wrote of Morrissey.
“Our shelves groan and bulge and spill over under the weight of Ezra, Larkin, Hughes and Heaney. And that’s just the surface; deep as it may seem. We feel very strongly that you belong in this company.”
Brackstone added: “To me (and to many of my colleagues) you are already in this company. It would be the fulfilment of my most pressing and persistent publishing dream to see that ‘ff’ sewn into the spine of your Life. Just any other publisher won’t do. You deserve Faber and the love we can give you. History demands it; destiny commands it.”
