One of alternative rock's most fascinating and provocative figures, Courtney Love rose to fame as singer and songwriter for rock band Hole. She would later become renowned as the widow of legendary Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain.
Co-written with Rolling Stone journalist and bestselling co-author of Slash and Tommy Lee's acclaimed autobiography, Anthony Bozza, Courtney's tell-all memoir will reveal her incredible story as she lived it - from her marriage to Kurt and her stints in Hollywood, through to her high-profile relationships, and her multiple reinventions.
Courtney was both a participant and a witness to the making of rock history. She was there at every major party, friend and foe to the biggest stars of this generation and the last, and induced awe, scandal and loyalty wherever she went.
From the woman who said that she would 'never write a book', Courtney's memoirs will reveal in raw and uncompromising prose her well-documented battles with substance abuse, and how these shaped a turbulent and outrageous life peppered with the extreme highs of critical and commercial acclaim to the lows of Kurt's tragic death and the scrutiny that followed.
This is the unmissable story of one of the most fearless, misunderstood and iconic stalwarts of rock, who, since she burst onto rock scene over 20 years ago, has never left the public eye, performing at Cannes and Moscow earlier in 2011, and appearing on Alan Carr Chatty Man in 2010.
