In each and every one of these roles Courtney Love has demonstrated a wholehearted commitment to her art and an unyielding drive and lust for her life that have made her a star and a celebrity icon but that have also led her into some unwise uncharted and even dangerous territory. Simultaneously candid and enigmatic Love is undeniably complelling her mordant wit and vivid intellegence matched in intensity only be the extraordinary life she has led from a bleak early childhood through great fame and terrible heartbreak to the present day. By turns exhilirating and unsettling this is a story told for the first time in Dirty Blonde. An electric composition of deeply personal artifacts including letters childhood records poetry journal entries song lyrics fanzines how flyers other origional writings and photographs many never before seen Dirty Blonde leads us through the unimaginable highs and the depressing lows of one of the most captivating and creative figures in the world of popular culture forming a kind of impromptu memoir the book shows Loves accomplishmens her missteps her history and her future in a whole new light. Ranging from her upbringing in Oregon through her years in Japan New Zealand and London from her career highs with Hole and as a Hollywood leading lady to her personal heartbreak and struggles Dirty Blonde is the Queen of rock laid bare a wholly fascinating portrait of a fierce and insightful woman with a unblinking worldview and a determination to express herself no matter the cost.

I was never a fan of Courtney Loves until I read all the bullshit she went through I still dont know if I actually like Courtney Love the person because there are so many personalities there I cant even count there are so many unanswered ?s about her which I will not get into interesting book good read thats all Ill say.
