What does /lit/ think of Morrissey's autobiography? Is it worth reading?
>>
It's a modern classic, of course it's worth reading.
>>
>penguin classic

dropped
>>
if you like Morrissey, yeah. not sure why you'd read it otherwise.
>>
>>7641270
this basically. no other reason.
>>
>>7641197
not for any literary value. Only if you like Morrissey. Which means you're a faggot.

>>7641334
>he doesn't like mozz/the smiths
absolutely repugnant

Reading? No.
Displaying? Yes.

It's a perfect encapsulation of everything that's wrong with the publishing industry.

The first half is good but after that it becomes a rambling jumble of "THAT COURT CASE WAS FUCKING GAY".

That's the literary aspect. As far as truth goes, it's obvious Moz is trying to pump himself up. He goes out of his way to shit-talk Bowie at every turn, despite the fact that Bowie was incredibly nice to him, renknown in the industry for helping new artists, and that Moz himself wanted to BE Bowie but refuses to admit it. It's a very slanted story but he does a decent literary job for the first half of the book.

Treat it as a novel and stop halfway through and you'll enjoy it a great deal.

yes

last quarter or so is absolute shit but childhood to mid-90s is gold. the court case is like a lost kafka novel
>>
>>7641374
While the first, non-court-case section is good (particularly the bits about school and childhood, though I wish he'd expanded a bit more on his trips to the U.S.) it's pretty devoid of organization. There was some really good bits of writing though, from what I remember.

>the court case is like a lost kafka novel

That implies it would be good. In reality it's just a lot of whinging and making Mike Joyce out to be a simpleton.

>>7641369
I thought it was pretty funny.

i like the writing style. it is refreshingly poetic and elegant instead of sparse and minimalist. some may find it pretentious but i liked it.
