Morrissey's autobiography is on course to be a Christmas best-seller, according to high street retailer Waterstones.

The book was published yesterday (October 17) and contains revelations about the former Smiths singer's professional and personal life.

Speaking to Associated Press, Jon Howells, spokesman for the Waterstones book store chain, said that he expects the book to sell well in the run up to Christmas. "In Britain, he is one of our icons," Howells said. "His is the great untold story from the '80s generation of music heroes." Autobiography is also Number One on the Amazon best-sellers list at the time of writing.
