About the Author

SINÉAD O'CONNOR is an Irish singer-songwriter and recording artist. She rose to international fame in 1990 with her arrangement of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U," and her critically acclaimed albums have won or been nominated for five Grammys. She lives in Ireland.


"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 the end, she emerges as a survivor."
--New York Times Book Review

"O'Connor's approach to storytelling displays both a rebel spirit and her unrelenting lack of shame surrounding her mental-health battles..."--Entertainment Weekly
