Product description


"A provocative and precocious read.... Smiths fans will love it, and even Morrissey himself might arch an eyebrow in appreciation." -- Peter Watts, Time Out

"A superb rockumentary of Morrisssey - witty, stylish, adoring, intellectually watertight." -- Paul Flynn, Attitude

"Entertaining and perceptive... written with real flair." -- Steve Jelbert, The Times, 24 Nov 03.

"Saint Morrissey says more... than a thousand interviews with cousins and primary teachers ever could." -- LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS

"Simpson is funny, clever, honest, irreverent and egotistical: quite the match for Morrissey. More biographies should be written this way." -- INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY Books of the Year

"Simpson writes with enough panache to make most of his peers toss their laptops into the waste disposal and weep." -- Independent on Sunday, 16 Nov 03

"Sublime.... No one has written this sensitively or intelligently about Morrissey." -- Brian Pera, 'San Francisco Bay Guardian'

A fitting, dazzling, handsome tribute. Read this book. -- Dermod Moore, THE HOT PRESS

Like his subject, incurable super-fan Simpson is constantly amusing and provocative...A book Morrissey will claim to hate, but secretly love. -- Ian Harrisson, MOJO

Simpson is funny, clever, honest, irreverent and egotistical: quite the match for Morrissey. More biographies should be written this way. -- Laurence Phelan, INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY Books of the Year


In this wickedly funny and deeply sacrilegious portrait, Morrissey isn't quite so enigmatic as he might first appear. To understand this most private and sexually ambivalent of stars and his seemingly erratic behaiviour, one needs only to do one thing. Listen to him. Mark Simpson offers the finest phsychological profile to date of England's most intelligent, most misunderstood, most charming and most alarming pop star.
