Neil Jordan – A Life in Words and Pictures

Amnesiac, the illuminating memoir of Academy Award-winning film director, screenwriter and author Neil Jordan, provides an intimate insight into the author’s distinguished life and career.At the age of 26, Jordan published his first book, Night in Tunisia, which won a Somerset Maugham Award and the Guardian Fiction Prize and established him as a rising literary star. As an acclaimed film director and screenwriter, his credits include Mona Lisa, Michael Collins and The Butcher Boy. In 1992, Jordan’s film The Crying Game won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and the BAFTA Award for Best British Film. In his first memoir, Jordan takes us behind the scenes and shares the story of his life, family, relationships, friendships and career. Reflecting on both the ghosts of his past and his personal triumphs, Amnesiac is a deeply intimate account of one of Ireland’s greatest storytellers.
