Morrissey's first novel, List of the Lost, will be published by Penguin Books (UK) at the end of September. The book will be issued in softcover/paperback as a New Fiction title, and comes almost two years after Morrissey's very successful publication of October 2013.
Penguin Books will confirm an on sale date within this coming week. List of the Lost will be available in the UK, Ireland, Australia, India, New Zealand and South Africa.
I am so excited to discover that the rumoured novel is ready for publication. It has been too long since Autobiography. The day it was published I was standing outside my local Waterstone's waiting for them to open. The sales assistant had to go to the store room and returned wheeling a trolley with crates of the book. I was shocked that they hadn't bothered to set up a display !!
I was thrilled and proud to buy the first copy and left the shop as the assistant put copies on display on a plinth at the entrance to the store. For those who cannot wait there is a ' spoiler ' elsewhere about the new novel content.
Time will tell if it is accurate.
