"Like her recordings, Sinead O'Connor's book veers between defiance and pain. She rejoices as she remembers the first time she had her head shaved ...but several of the longer set pieces recount terrifying encounters in vivid detail. The naked and fearless emotions that made Sinead O'Connor such a riveting artist, shine through her words and self-awareness...in the end, she emerges as a survivor." — New York Times Book Review
“Sinéad's 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, lead singer of R.E.M.
“A brutally honest account of an extraordinary life.” — Carson Daly, The Today Show
"O'Connor has had a tumultuous life: stealing, getting thrown out of school, running away, parental abuse....idiosyncratic and poignant." — Booklist
"A self-aware confessional from a successful and controversial musician." — Kirkus Reviews
“The idiosyncratic singer-songwriter takes readers on an emotional roller coaster in this unapologetic, soul-baring debut…This page-turner will enthrall the singer’s fans." — Publishers Weekly
"Full of heart, humour and remarkable generosity." — The Guardian
