Steven Patrick Morrissey is one of the most original and controversial voices in the history of popular music. With The Smiths, he led the most influential British guitar group of the 1980s, his enigmatic wit and style defining a generation. As a solo artist, he has continued to broach subjects no other singer would dare.
Worshipped by some, vilified by others, Morrissey is a unique rock and roll creation. The 300,000 words of Mozipedia make this the most intimate and in-depth biographical portrait of the man and his music yet. Bringing together every song, album, collaborator, key location, every hero, book, film and record to have influenced his art, it is the summation of years of meticulous research. Morrissey authority Simon Goddard has interviewed almost everybody of any importance, making Mozipedia the last word on Morrissey and The Smiths.

"It's the undertaking of a maniac and Goddard succeeds like a genius... the fullest portrait of Morrissey yet put to paper. Goddard has become what Hunter Davies is to The Beatles or Jon Savage is to punk; the number one authority on the subject. ****" -- Q, September 2009
This book is the perfect festive gift for any Morrissey fan, who would be unsurprised to learn that Mozza himself finds Christmas "fairly annoying".
--The Daily Telegraph, 28 November, 2009
"Goddard proves worthy of his subject... This is a superb achievement. ****" -- Mojo, September 2009
"I cannot recommend it highly enough. Everything you'd ever want to know about the man, the myth, the quiff. I cannot put it down - a terrific read." -- Gary Crowley, BBC London
