A real beauty
Of course it’s a penguin classic! It’s so well-written and captivating. Morrissey is the best!
This book is great. I am a die hard fan, but even I can admit Mom can act aloof and diva-esque at times. I really think this book gives insight as to why Morrissey is the way he is. It actually makes me like him more after reading it.
Morrissey, I read every word of your book and I love it! I don't even know why I loved it. Maybe the lyrical story telling, or the sly personal revelations. No, I think it was the blunt honesty of your opinions and the detail of your efforts. I'm not your biggest fan but I felt a kinship with you throughout, and the final paragraph left me stunned. Reminded me of the ending of No Country For Old Men...
