Morrissey ‘Autobiography’ audiobook to be read by David Morrissey

Digital download will be released on December 5

Actor David Morrissey has recorded the voiceover for the audiobook version of Morrissey‘s autobiography, it has been reported.

Morrissey fansite True To You reports that the actor, known for roles in The Walking Dead and State Of Play, recorded the “complete and unabridged” voiceover for digital release on December 5. It was recently confirmed that Autobiography will get its US release on December 3.

The book was published on October 17 and contains revelations about the former Smiths singer’s professional and personal life. It was reported shortly after the release of the book that it was likely to be a Christmas best-seller, according to high street retailer Waterstones.

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.”
