Morrissey's autobiography to be a "classic"

The iconic singer-songwriter Morrissey, who recently revealed that he's finished writing his autobiography, wants his book to be have a certain status.

During an interview with BBC Radio 4's Front Row, he explained he wants the personal text to be released under the publisher Penguin's 'classics series'. He also admitted that he is well into the editing stages:

"I've been through the whole life in many ways and 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. I'm trimming."

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Penguin has tipped the forthcoming release to be "a classic in the making". Morrissey will perform at Hop Farm Festival this summer and you can listen to his full Radio 4 interview below:
