Morrissey "Autobiography" Edited...

Posted by: Jason Tate (12/04/13)
WENN is reporting that the US version of Morrissey's autobiography has been edited to various degrees, including the editing out of details surrounding his relationship with photographer Jake Walters.
The tome, titled Autobiography, details several anecdotes involving Walters, and Morrissey writes movingly of their two years together, but in the U.S. release, which was published on Tuesday (03Dec13), many details in the original book are missing or edited down.

Another attempt to shield us from the gay agenda?

I bought this yesterday and I'm enjoying it so far. His writing style is exactly what you would expect from him. Bummed it's not the same cover as the UK edition though.

This NY Times article said the two editions "would be nearly identical" but it was written a while ago. That's another bummer if the US edition is leaving stuff out.

The best to make sure something gets talked about is to try to censor/edit it out. The lousier the concealment job, the more likely folks will talk about it.

Why would the company bid on it (probably for a large sum of money) and then edit it down? They knew the content before didn't they? Hope he goes on one of his huge rants.

This is very odd, possibly troubling.

Then again, he hasn't reacted yet, so maybe it didn't happen.

I imported the UK edition but only made it through 20 or so pages so far. Rough read.

How so? Everything I've heard has said he's a good writer and has a good voice for it. Haven't read any of it myself though.

It is a bit tough to read not because of his writing, but because he writes about his favorite TV shows, musicians, and other events surrounding his childhood and much of it is kind of obscure to Americans - especially our age group. I had to Google a lot of the stuff which slows up my reading pace.

Edit: Forgot to mention there's no chapters or pauses within the writing. You kind of just have to take breaks when you see fit.

I will be grabbing the UK version online soon. Hopefully it won't be so bad for me considering I'm from the UK and all
