Pour ceux et celles qui se sont passionnés pour les Smiths, pour ceux et celles qui se reconnaissent dans la sincérité et la sensibilité à fleur de peau du "Ringleader of the tormentors", cette autobiographie est un must... Peinture brutale du Manchester 60's et 70's, commentaires acérés et ironie mordante sur le milieu musical anglais, Morrissey se met à nu... Vous ne serez pas déçu(e)s !

Pour quelques euros de plus une très belle édition (américaine) à préférer à la version poche de chez Penguin. Envoi très rapide et parfaitement emballé. Mise en page classique avec quelques photos peu connues -voire inédites - des jeunes années du Moz.

The Public Will Forgive Anything Except Genius 19 octobre 2013
Par Byron - Publié sur
Format: Broché
100 pages in and so far it has mostly been pretty harrowing descriptions of the casual brutality of post-war working class life and soul-crushing 'education' in northern England alternating with some of the best writing about what music can do to a human being, MEAN to a human being, ever written.

It has its flaws in that it is clearly penned by a self-taught Irish/northerner from a ravaged, poverty-stricken, red-brick wasteland, and as such has not the slickness and sheen of journalistic prose. A trustworthy editor may have improved a number of passages here and there. He likes alliteration a little too much, which I've never been fond of, & which gives the average sentence a strange sing-song quality and structure all its own. There is no way in hell this book was ghostwritten.

But then this is the books greatest strength, too. As with his passions, his politics, his sexuality, he is not 'this' or 'that', does not belong 'here' or 'there', he exists between the temporary meaning of all those words, all those labels, and it is this place he steadfastly attempts to write from in trying to explain himself and the felt experience of his life. That he achieves at all in this impossible mission would be enough for me to want to recommend the book to everyone I know, but that he makes his stand with such humour, passion and courage makes me want to press it into the hands of anyone with half a heart left to feel.

I thought at first, when I saw that it was going to be put out as a Penguin Classic that this was just another of Morrissey's whimsical appropriations of the things he loves, like getting EMI to reopen the "His Master's Voice" label up again just for him. But having got only a fifth of the way in, it seems eerily prophetic, as this is a truly great autobiography, and its very existence in the physical world feels momentous, like finding the lost journals of Lord Byron or Oscar Wilde.

Human, all too human, but worth more than a thousand of his detractors even now, the man's a national - no, international - treasure. As history shall duly record.

US edition is bowdlerized - don't buy it! 18 décembre 2013
Par Joe S. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Google it - the US edition has details of Morrissey's personal life edited out - details that were apparently deemed likely to upset American readers, who (even when looking to read Morrissey's autobiography) are apparently likely to be offended by discussion of homosexuality. I returned mine and will be buying the British edition. Scandal.

Everything you'd expect 20 octobre 2013
Par Jake Yenor - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Morrissey has been such a mystery. Part of me felt reading his autobiography would ruin a lot of what makes Morrissey well, Morrissey. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Incredible read.

Pretentious and romantic, in the best sense of the words. Loved it. 13 novembre 2013
Par Dermot Browne - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As a long term fan I found this to be a very easy and interesting read. He is of course totally mad, passionate, bitter and twisted, poetic, bitchy, pretentious and hopelessly romantic, in the best sense of the word. He is not, as the nay-sayers and non-believers would have it, miserable.

Challenging... But Did We Expect Any Less? 8 novembre 2013
Par dancinhomer - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I thought quite a bit about what I would say. Critiquing someone's autobiography is critiquing someone's assessment of their own life, and that hardly seems fair. Still, we're being asked to plunk down some cash to read it, so I'll try to be as objective as I can.

This is unusually written in the present tense, and I quickly grew to enjoy it. It made me feel as if I were along for the ride and living the experiences with Morrissey. However, things would often veer off (as life itself tends to do) and conversations or situations would pop up seemingly out of nowhere and I'd be left going backwards in the book to see what I had missed. Still, I enjoyed Morrissey's style.

Without judging the man, let me say this: Readers who say that there wasn't enough content devoted to The Smiths have a valid point. It's not that this period was ignored, and it accounts for around 10 percent of Morrissey's life thus far so Morrissey may have thought it didn't deserve a huge percentage of the book. But, like other fans, I felt that this period didn't deliver as much about his experiences with The Smiths as I would have liked. I recognize that Morrissey has license to choose how to tell his own story, but that was what I was most anticipating and found myself feeling a bit short-changed.

However, a considerable amount of time was spent discussing the lawsuit between Moz and Mike Joyce, which was clearly a painful recollection. I, for one, found it enlightening to hear his side of the story. And this helped me understand why a Smiths reunion will never happen. People may say mean things about Moz because of his unwillingness to reunite, but when seeing his perspective on what happened, I can understand why he feels like he has given them enough. Yes, it's the fans who suffer (and I'm one of them), but I can understand why he just can't hand these guys another payday.

To be fair, and this may be a cultural thing, but even in his autobiography, Morrissey seems surprisingly distant. For someone who conquered the world with his heart on his sleeve, this rather surprised me. But, more often than not, the reader will be given facts with a minimum of feelings. Perhaps Moz feels like he says it all in his songs. Given the events he described, a reader can see why he might be slow to trust anyone. I don't know if everything in the book is 100% accurate, but if this was his reality as he saw it, he has every right to be suspicious of the world.

In short (although it's probably too late for that), some people will find Moz to be rather judgmental and aloof. Others will see someone who has paid a dear price for success.

So, I would recommend it, but don't expect to get everything you might want from it. You'll walk away with a better understanding of Moz, for better or worse.
