Rememberings, Hardback Book

Rememberings Hardback



THE LANDMARK MEMOIR OF A GLOBAL MUSIC ICONSHORTLISTED FOR THE IRISH BOOK AWARDS 2021Sinead 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.
