Books about The Smiths & Morrissey

The Smiths - Songs That Saved Your Life
by Simon Goddard
Based upon new interviews with band members, producers and acquaintances, this book investigates the stories behind the songs, from their very first demos in 1982 to their final fractured studio session five years later. The book also lifts the lid on previously unreleased material never before mentioned in print.

In the research for this book, author Simon Goddard was granted unprecedented access to The Smiths' studio archives and the private collection of outtakes and rehearsals retained by drummer Mike Joyce (who also provides a complimentary foreword). The result is the most comprehensive examination of their esteemed discography ever assembled, revealing lost songs and alternate versions which have remained closely guarded secrets until now. Informative, impassioned and revelatory, as an analysis of "The Most Influential Band of All Time", The Smiths - Songs That Saved Your Life is indispensable.
240 pages, 232x152mm, 40 illustrations. Released December 2002.

Meetings With Morrissey
by Len Brown
(Book home page)
This book gets behind the public image to tell Morrissey's story in the man's own words and explore in detail the extraordinary lyrical content of his songs. A former NME writer, Len Brown has interviewed Morrissey more times than any other journalist. He was the first writer to talk to Morrissey about the death of The Smiths and the birth of the singer's solo career. The book will celebrate the many artists Morrissey has elevated to iconic status - via the lyrics or Smiths covers including Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield, Billy Fury, Marc Bolan and The New York Dolls. It will offer in-depth insight into Morrissey's lifelong commitment to promoting the genius of Oscar Wilde.
