Singer Morrissey (read here more info) is said to be searching for a new publisher after he cancelled plans to produce an autobiography with publishers Penguin. The plans were scrapped at the last minute after a content disagreement between the singer and Penguin Books.

The book entitled “Autobiography” was to be available in the United Kingdom on Monday, September 16 but it seems there were issues for a while as no review copies were printed.

Morrissey, who made his name with Smiths wrote the book in 2011 and has been searching for a publisher and eventually stated that he wished the book to be printed as a Penguin Classic.

“I’d like it to go to Penguin, but only if they published it as a Classic. When you consider what really hits print these days and when you look at the autobiographies and how they are sold, most of it is appalling. It’s a publishing event, not a literary event”, he said in an interview with BBC Radio 4previously.

Meanwhile, Penguin has neither confirmed nor denied that the book was due to be published. Morrissey has not had a very good year in 2013. He had to cancel his entire tour of South America after suffering case of food poisoning while his doctor has told to retire in the interest of his health.
