Morrissey's Autobiography has landed a Stateside publisher.

The book was previously only available in the UK and Europe, through Penguin Classics, but now the New York Times explains that it will be released in North America through GP Putnam's Sons, which is an imprint of Penguin Random House.

No US release date has been announced though, and the New York Times reports that fans in North America have been buying the book at 'inflated prices' through online retailers based in the UK. Meanwhile, in the UK, the long awaited memoir beat the new Bridget Jones novel to top the best sellers chart in its first week of sale earlier this month.

Autobiography sold just under 35,000 copies according to sales figures in trade magazine The Bookseller, while Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones novel Mad About The Boy sold 32,000 copies.

The autobiography is on course to be a Christmas bestseller, according to high-street retailer Waterstones. Speaking to Associated Press, Jon Howells, spokesman for the Waterstones bookstore chain, said he expects the book to sell well in the run-up to the festive season. "In Britain, he is one of our icons," Howells said. "His is the great untold story from the '80s generation of music heroes."
