'Niall Horan: The Unauthorized Biography' is the story of how a short, smalltown Irish boy shot to overnight national and then global fame. Born in Mullingar, County Westmeath, Niall's early years were difficult as he and his older brother endured the breakdown of their parents' marriage and subsequent divorce. Living between each of his parents' home for the next few years before eventually settling with his father, it was in this period that Niall embarked upon his remarkable musical journey. Stints in the school choir and performances around his homeland, including in support of Lloyd Daniels in Dublin, propelled him to The X Factor and his first brushes with fame. Nothing could have prepared Niall for the adulation and success that followed.
