Morrissey - main biographical details (by page)

This section shows only key biographical entries grouped by page. Note that the timeline jumps around a lot throughout the book, so this shouldn't be relied upon as a list of life events in chronological order. Entries about The Smiths here are only given where Morrissey expresses a personal opinion; for detailed entries about The Smiths see the Smiths index.
For general entries see the main index; for main biographical details listed alphabetically by topic see the main Morrissey index. All page numbers relate to the Penguin Classics 2013 paperback.
