Morrissey - Morrissey Rejects Plans To Translate Autobiography For Foreign Fans

Veteran British rocker Morrissey has blocked plans to have his recent bestselling memoir translated for publishing in foreign languages.

The former The Smiths star released Autobiography last year (13) and it proved to be a big hit with fans, shifting 35,000 copies in the U.K. in its first week, becoming Britain's fastest-selling rock book.

Plans had been afoot to have his life story published in 14 languages, including Japanese, Portuguese and Serbian, but the Suedehead singer has since put a stop to the translations.

A message posted on his fansite True-to-you.net reads: "Morrissey has rejected the many and varied requests to have his Autobiography translated into several languages.

"As per his wishes, the book will remain a UK Penguin Classic, and will not be printed in the countries listed on this site some months ago."
