An interesting segment from Sinéad O’Connor’s biography in the Irish Times today.
To be honest, I’ve always been in two minds with respect to Sinéad. One part of me thinks of her as a somewhat obnoxious and needy individual who’s desperation for attention outweighs anybody else’s opinion.
Another part of me has a bit more compassion and sees both the anguish of the extreme mental health issues she’s dealing with and the creative work she’s produced as a result of that.
Both impressions, of course, are built on nothing more than half-glimpsed newspapers headings – rarely a source of credible detail.
I may get her book (if I find the time/opportunity) but I do wonder whether she’d be a ‘reliable narrator’.
Meanwhile, judge for yourself. You can find the article HERE
