** YourMileageMayVary as to whether that's a nightmare or a dream...if you're a Morrissey fan, possibly the latter. Upon her long-awaited death in 2013, Morrissey made a series of comments blasting her economic, foreign and social policies.

* ''Exit Smiling'' (1998), a book of film criticism written in 1979 but given a limited issue in 1998. All three of these books above are both incredibly short -- each is under 100 pages -- [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes and incredibly rare and out of print]].

Morrissey has also written a few books. These are:
* ''The New York Dolls'' (1981), a biography of [[Music/TheNewYorkDolls]].
* ''James Dean is Not Dead'' (1983), a biography of [[JamesDean]].
* ''Exit Smiling'' (1998), a book of film criticism written in 1979 but given a limited issue in 1998. All three of these books above are both incredibly short -- each is under 100 pages -- [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes and incredibly rare and out of print]].
* ''Autobiography'' (2013), his autobiography. Has a bit of a love-or-hate-it reputation.
* ''List of the Lost'' (2015), his debut novel. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_Lost#Reception Received scathingly negative reviews]], perhaps the worst of his career in any medium.

Added DiffLines:

** Morrissey spends much of his ''Autobiography'' delivering back-handed {{TakeThat}}s to his musical peers (Siouxsie Sioux), artists that he'd previously indicated as influences (DavidBowie, Sandie Shaw) and former bandmates. Among the few that are spared harsh treatment are his longtime friend [[Music/ThePretenders Chrissie Hynde]], Bowie guitarist Mick Ronson and his late producer Jerry Finn. Moz writes that he was deeply affected by Finn's death at the young age of 39, shortly after work was finished on ''Years of Refusal''.

Morrissey is a British singer and lyricist who first became known when he emerged in the early 80s as the lead singer of TheSmiths. He went solo shortly after the breakup of the group in 1987 and has been going strong ever since.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: He has a large Latino fanbase, mostly due to his hammy, melodramatic lyricism and singing style unintentionally evoking the ''ranchera'' style of Mexican music. He even said: "I wish I was born Mexican."
