Morrissey‘s first novel, List Of The Lost, will be published next month, according to quasi-official fansite, True To You.
According to a post dated August 22, “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.”
Morrissey launched his memoir at a book signing in Gothenburg, Sweden on October 17, 2013.
The book topped the best sellers chart in its first week of sale, selling just under 35,000 copies according to sales figures in trade magazine The Bookseller.
Meanwhile, Morrissey has shared three previously unheard demos from the Years Of Refusal sessions.
They are initial run-throughs of “Something Is Squeezing My Skull“, “One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell” and “Mama Lay Softly On The Riverbed” which were recorded in 2008.
They are currently streaming on True To You.
Years Of Refusal was Morrissey’s ninth solo album, following 2006’s Ringleader Of The Tormentors.
It was the first Morrissey album since 1992’s Your Arsenal not to feature long-time bandmate Alain Whyte on guitar.
