Rememberings

From the acclaimed, controversial singer-songwriter Sinéad O'Connor comes a revelatory memoir of her fraught childhood, musical triumphs, fearless activism, and of the enduring power of song. Blessed with a singular voice and a fiery temperament, Sinéad O'Connor rose to massive fame in the late 1980s and 1990s with a string of gold records. By the time she was twenty, she was world famous--living a rock star life out loud. From her trademark shaved head to her 1992 appearance on Saturday Night Live when she tore up Pope John Paul II's photograph, Sinéad has fascinated and outraged millions. In Rememberings, O'Connor recounts her painful tale of growing up in Dublin in a dysfunctional, abusive household. Inspired by a brother's Bob Dylan records, she escaped into music. She relates her early forays with local Irish bands; we see Sinéad completing her first album while eight months pregnant, hanging with Rastas in the East Village, and soaring to unimaginable popularity with her cover of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2U." Intimate, replete with candid anecdotes and told in a singular form true to her unconventional career, Sinéad's memoir is a remarkable chronicle of an enduring and influential artist.

THE LANDMARK MEMOIR OF A GLOBAL MUSIC ICON Sinéad 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.

Preshrunk Ponderings And Rumpled Rememberings

Preshrunk Ponderings And Rumpled Rememberings

Preshrunk Ponderings and Rumpled Rememberings is a collection of folksy essays on low-cost housing and its relationship to homelessness, on public transportation and its relationships to independence of movement and quality of life, on artifice and institutionalism in higher education, and on the tinkering mind and creative science. The author draws from his experiences in living life fully from the low-end of the economic scale and offers uncommon perspectives on what readers may find common all around us. Reasonable analyses of problems are intended less toward offerings of solutions than to provoke thought and stimulate discussion. There are no overt polemics or hard-line politics that might stir the dental profession to action from widespread gnashing of teeth. These are just amiable discourses on a few diverse topics to animate some dimension to the prevailing flat dullness and torpor. They are easy reading for a few lazy hours.

Remembering Kings Past

Remembering Kings Past

The rich legends spun between 1000 and 1250 and by the monks of southwestern France to explain the origins of their communities are the subject of this provocative study. Amy G. Remensnyder explores the monastic foundation legends in all their variety - including forged charters, hagiographic texts, chansons de geste, architecture, and sculpture - to show how such imaginative rememberings of the past worked to affirm the liberty and identity of the abbeys in the present. At the center of the legends stand three kings whom the monks favored as founders: Clovis, Pippin the Short, and, above all, Charlemagne. Remensnyder reveals the many implications of this legendary affection for kings, a startling predilection on the part of monks living in a region where actual rulers hardly ventured during the period. A major contribution to the cultural history of images of French kingship, the book demonstrates how communities far from effective royal power could create and manipulate royal images, using them to serve their own interests. For Remensnyder also situates these legendary images in the web of local social relations from which they emerged. She shows that when threats to their liberty and identity arose, the monasteries could shield themselves by invoking their legendary founders. The book illuminates the world of medieval southern France, and its relation to the French kings. It will interest all those who seek to understand the processes by which a community imaginatively remembers its past so that it becomes the basis for its identity in the present. It also demonstrates that texts often discounted as "fiction" can tell us as much as those classified as "fact".

Remembering And Rethinking The Gdr

Remembering And Rethinking The Gdr

More than twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, memories of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) remain complex and controversial. As new generations come of age, not only do the political, social and cultural parameters of remembrance shift accordingly, but so too do the forms of media used to transmit these memories. This volume explores the different ways in which the GDR has been remembered since its demise in 1989/90, and asks how memory of this state continues to impact on contemporary Germany. The chapters offer multiple perspectives on the GDR, examining the way memories have been expressed in and shaped by literature, film, music, museums, monuments, historical narratives, commemorative events and everyday discourse concerning the GDR. In resisting monolithic readings of the GDR, the volume offers new insights into the complex relationship between past and present in eastern Germany.
