The Essential Interviews
Edited by Paul A. Woods
Revised and Updated

Morrissey is as renowned for his elegantly waspish interviews as for his celebrated song lyrics. His wit and vitriol are now collected in a long overdue anthology, comprised of the famous statements of Britain's unlikeliest rock'n'roll star. In his own words: the mould breaking days of the Smiths, the early solo triumphs, the hurtful ostracism by the music press that once lionised him, and the recent return after years in the commercial wilderness. As much an archivist of British cultural life as a pop star, this collection preserves for posterity his lifelong obsessions: from 1960s girl singers to the war against animal cruelty.
