Morrissey has confirmed his first foray into fiction, and announced his novel, titled List of the Lost, on Saturday via his fanzine True To You—the same place where he teased in January 2014 that he was “mid-way through [his] novel.”
List of the Lost is the British singer’s second book, following his 2013 memoir Autobiography. According to Moz’s announcement, Penguin Books (UK) will publish the novel as a paperback in late September in the UK, Ireland, Australia, India, New Zealand, and South Africa. He says Penguin will confirm a specific release date sometime this week.
The novel’s release follows a busy, tour-filled summer for Morrissey in support of his 2014 studio effort World Peace Is None Of Your Business. But even if performing is his day job, the singer certainly proved his writing chops to EW with Autobiography—revisit our review of the “bracing, beautiful tour de force of a rock memoir” here.
