Morrissey Fans in the Borderlands  

“Morrissey perhaps was seduced by LA like most people who are not from here, lured by the nostalgia of old Hollywood or perhaps simple sunshine.”

Morrissey is a music icon. The former singer of the influential Manchester band The Smiths is arguably one of the most intriguing, if not polarizing, iconic figures of popular culture.

But this book is not about Morrissey. This book is about his fans, their creative expressions of fandom, and their contributions to Morrissey’s worldwide popularity. Specifically, this book is about the subculture of Moz fandom as a US-Mexican borderland phenomenon. Mozlandia — Morrissey fans from the Midlands to the Borderlands.
