In response to Moz's announcement -- which he shared with BBC Radio 4's Front Row during a recent interview -- a spokeswoman for the esteemed publishing house told the Independent: "There is a natural fit between Morrissey's sensibility, his artistic achievements and Penguin Classics. [His] book could be published as a Penguin Classic because it is a classic in the making."
Before the courting process even began, the singer told Front Row that he wasn't sure anyone would want to read his autobiography. "I'm really not that interesting, so I don't know why I've written so much," said the former Smiths lead man.
"I have been through the whole life. I just wonder if 660 pages are too much for people to bear. And then I sit down and think, well, are six pages too much for people to bear? I really don't know. [It's] baffling."
He also spoke of how he was in the "re-drafting, trimming stage," of writing his autobiography and that he hoped to have it published in 2012. It can be assumed that the singer will dish on everything from Johnny Marr to UK Prime Minister David Cameron. But we really just want to know why he's so sad.
