Diary Of A Smiths Fan

All about The Smiths' music, gigs, stories, anything.

Postby JennySinn » Mon Feb 06, 2006 12:44 pm

Hi, I remember a couple of years ago hearing about a guy who wrote an autobiography, of sorts, but using The Smiths as the main focus. Kinda 'My life with The Smiths'? It was all about his life as a Smiths fan.
I'm trying to get hold of a copy, but I'm not even sure my memory's correct on this one!!! Does such a book exist????
Please help, I'm writing a piece of coursework that this would fit nicely into!!!!
Thanks guys!

Can't say I've heard of the book but I think there are a couple of books which refer to growing up with The Smiths; 'The Wrong Boy', by Willy Russell, and I think the 33<span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%'>1/3</span> 'Meat Is Murder' book is something along those lines. Though don't take my word for it.

nick hornby has done a lot of books using music as his focus, maybe hes done a smiths-focused one, although ive never heard of it.

(Off topic, but 'Love Monkey', new series on TV in the States, is a direct rip of Hornby's 'High Fidelity'. Still, I am watching it. <!--emo&<_<-->Image<!--endemo--> )


Jenny, there is a movie Diary of a Morrissey Fan, I think's the name that was put out on DVD in the last couple of years. Lead singer from the tribute band Sweet and Tender Hooligans was in it. I didn't remember reading anything good about it though!

The Meat is Murder book has been trying to become a movie for a while now.

Keep searching!

Mark Simpsom wrote "Saint Morrissey" which kinda tells the story of how he found The Smiths and Morrissey..
It is a good read
