An intimate and revelatory memoir from the iconic, acclaimed singer-songwriter.

Sinéad O'Connor's voice and trademark shaved head made her famous by the age of twenty-one. Her landmark 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. Unapologetic and impossible to ignore, she called out hypocrisy wherever she saw it, and has done so 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.

Sinead Marie Bernadette O'Connor was born in Dublin in 1966. Her debut solo album, The Lion and the Cobra, was released in 1987 and has gone on to sell over 2.5 million copies. Her second album, I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got, featured the number one hit single 'Nothing Compares 2 U' and went to number one in nine countries, selling over 7 million copies. Since then she has released nine albums, most recently 2007's Theology, and has collaborated with artists like Shane MacGowan, U2, Massive Attack and Ian Brown.
