Two years after the success of his acclaimed Autobiography, Morrissey has decided to make his way over to the fiction shelves. The former Smiths singer has written a debut novel, List of the Lost, set for publication via Penguin Books at the end of September. The book will be released as a paperback, according to the Morrissey zine True to You (which, as The Guardian notes, is the closest thing this guy has to a Twitter or an Instagram for making announcements). A release date is expected later this week, and the book will reportedly be available in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, and the U.K. (no word yet on a Stateside release). Plot details were unavailable, but if the story hopes to be anything like its cryptic title (and author), get ready for some somber, melodramatic fun. Maybe in a convertible, or a desert, or both. Who knows, but we're excited, Moz.
