Synopsis

THE LANDMARK MEMOIR OF A GLOBAL MUSIC ICON



Sinead O'Connor's voice and trademark shaved head made her famous by the age of twenty-one. Her recording of Prince's Nothing Compares 2 U made her a global icon. She outraged millions when she tore up a photograph of Pope John Paul II on American television.



O'Connor was unapologetic and impossible to ignore, calling out hypocrisy wherever she saw it.

She has remained that way for three decades.



Now, in Rememberings, O'Connor tells her story - the heartache of growing up in a family falling apart; her early forays into the Dublin music scene; her adventures and misadventures in the world of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll; the fulfilment of being a mother; her ongoing spiritual quest - and through it all, her abiding passion for music.



Rememberings is intimate, replete with candid anecdotes and full of hard-won insights. It is a unique and remarkable chronicle by a unique and remarkable artist.



'Inspiring, liberating, hilarious and fascinating' Irish Times



'Beautifully observed ... lyrical, funny and anguished' Guardian



'Her voice on the page is as fearless, riveting and unforgettable as her voice in song. The cadence alone is hypnotic, her story essential. Rememberings is a must-read' Michael Stipe



'So good, you'll want to read it twice' Sunday Independent



'A soul-bearing, brutally honest account of an extraordinary life' BBC Online



'Devastating, wise, hilarious and original' Roisin Ingle
