‘Fifteen Minutes With You’ – the book of the blog – is now available in full colour paperback to pre-order from FBSpublishing.  It contains twenty-four interviews about The Smiths and Morrissey from famous fans and music collaborators.

The book has a foreword by Andrew Paresi and a rare and beautiful shot of Morrissey on the front cover, by Kevin Cummins.  I’m beyond words of delight that these guys are involved.

The above twenty-four interviews are no longer available to read on juliehamill.com, however, some still exist to provide bonus colour pictures of interviewees and other images relevant to the text in the book.  New ‘Fifteen Minutes With You’ interviews will continue to be posted on juliehamill.com as they become available. 

I would like to thank the Mozarmy for the encouragement, support and push.  If it wasn’t for your ‘Fifteen Minutes’ wouldn’t exist as a very wonderful thing.  I dedicate it to you.  

Morrissey, I’ll leave the hall light on for you.
