Johnny Marr says he’s got his own publishing deal for an autobiography, Brooklyn Vegan reports. In an interview with the music blog Marr said:

There is gonna be one, yeah. I’ve had so many offers and so many people advising me that my story is worth it, but I understand it’s something that I have to do. I’ll do it in the next couple of years. I’m into from the stance that I want it to be so thorough that I don’t make a record or tour whilst I was doing it. It is gonna happen, and I’ve already made an agreement with a publisher for it, so I will get it done.

Meanwhile, Putnam Books will publish Morrissey’s Autobiography in the US in a hardback edition on December 3, 2013. The book, published in October of this year in the UK, is a major hit, selling 35,000 copies during it’s first week and topping Amazon’s UK bestsellers chart.
