Morrissey -- who revealed that he had started writing his memoirs in 2008 -- is reminded by Brackstone that they have spoken before about the offered publishing deal, the editor begins. "I have been trying to persuade you of the virtues and wisdom of this for some years now. You probably won't remember," Brackstone writes.
The heartfelt letter of persuasion continues, explaining, "Our shelves groan and bulge and spill over under the weight of Ezra, Larkin, Hughes and Heaney. And that's just the surface; deep as it may seem. We feel very strongly that you belong in this company. To me (and to many of my colleagues) you are already in this company."
Brackstone reiterates, "It would be the fulfilment of my most pressing and persistent publishing dream to see that 'ff' sewn into the spine of your Life. Just any other publisher won't do. You deserve Faber and the love we can give you. History demands it; destiny commands it."
The letter concludes, "I did receive a fax from you once to my invitation. And you responded with interest. I don't know if at that stage you had embarked on your project but I have recently heard again that 'it is on'. Morrissey, the doors of our Georgian Bloomsbury-based publishing house are open to you wherever you may be: Rome, LA, Manchester."
Morrissey has yet to comment.
