You'll learn way more than you ever wanted to know about the band and the split between Johnny Marr and Steve Morrissey from this at times obsessively accurate and detailed account. I was struck by how weird Morrissey really is. His odd antics in print and life are not an act. He really is an odd duck. But isn't that why we love him so much? He speaks for all of us when he whines, moans, and sighs about life's missed opportunities, unrequited loves, and the mystery of personal identity.
Included are dozens of photos of everyone involved in the whole saga. It is a really great read! Enjoy!
"It's so easy to laugh. It's so easy to hate. It takes guts to be gentle and kind...I know it's over, and it never really began. But in my heart it was so real."

This book is not an easy read. Rogan includes way too many meaningless details. I couldn't get through it. It's worth the cost though for the pics.Published on June 26, 2008 by Kurt D
