Morrissey to Release First Work of Fiction “The List of the Lost” in September [UPDATED]

There's no US release date for the novel yet. [There is now; it's September 24.]

Last weekend, Morrissey shocked everyone by not dropping out of his headlining slot at LA’s FYF Fest.

Now, in news that may be a bit less surprising, Paste reports that (according to the British icon’s online “zine” True to You) the singer will release a work of fiction called The List of the Lost later this year. The novel, which comes nearly two years after his Autobiography, will be published by Penguin Books (UK) at the end of September. The rumor is that Penguin will confirm an official release date sometime this week.

Unfortunately, the book will be available in the UK, Australia, India, Ireland, South Africa, and New Zealand—not, at least for now, anywhere in North America.

Sorry, American Moz fans!

Originally published August 25, 1:00 p.m.

Updated: August 26, 11:00 a.m.: True to You has now updated with the book cover (below), release date (September 24), and the detail that List of the Lost will only be released in paperback form. And sorry, Yanks: still no US release date.
