All Saints should be presumed guilty until proved innocent

All Saints should be presumed guilty until proved innocent. Simpson’s ‘psycho-bio’ offers a handsome counterpoint to that sober doorstep, choosing not to examine the life to explain the art, but instead studying the lyrics to celebrate the man. The result is a deliciously deviant deification. Simpson’s love-letter takes in love, literacy, class, violence, sex and all the other staples with which Morrissey, and England, is obsessed, and in the process casts a caustic eye over the country and pop vacuum Morrissey’s defection to Los Angeles has created.

Saint Morrissey book. However, as Mark Simpson argues in his wickedly funny and deeply sacrilegious portrait, Morrissey isn’t quite so enigmatic as he might at first appear.

Saint Morrissey was Simpson's "psycho-bio" of the former Smiths front man, written at a low point of the singer's career, and published the year before Morrissey's 2004 comeback.

(Laurence Phelan, Independent on Sunday Books of the Year').

Saint Morrissey tells us what The Smiths meant, using a mixture of psychoanalysis, lit-crit and guesswork. I've never met Mark Simpson, but feel that I know him. I was the World's Biggest Smiths Fan, the only soul in my small town who understood. We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view. Just like all the other World's Biggest Smiths Fans, in their own small towns. And just like Mark Simpson, in his slightly larger town (York).

Don't forget the songs that made you cry, and the songs that saved your life. There's no reason to talk about the books I read, but still I do. - - Morrissey. Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before.
