A multi-textual memoir chronicling the life of one of our
most potent pop icons
Groundbreaking rock musician. Award-winning actress.
Perceptive songwriter and author. Mother. Wife of a rock
god. Fashionista and trendsetter. Provocateur. In each and
every one of these roles Courtney Love has demonstrated a
wholehearted commitment to her art, and an intense drive and
a lust for life that have made her a star and a celebrity
icon—but have also led her into some unwise, uncharted, and
even dangerous territory. Simultaneously candid and
enigmatic, Love has a mordant wit and vivid intelligence
matched in intensity only by the extraordinary life she has
led, from a bleak early childhood through great fame and
terrible heartbreak to the present day. By turns
exhilarating and unsettling, this is a story told for the
first time in Dirty Blonde.
Composed of an astonishing and eclectic collection of deeply
personal artifacts including personal letters, childhood
records, poetry, diary entries, song lyrics, fanzines, show
flyers, other original writings, and never-before-seen
photographs, Dirty Blonde leads us through the unimaginable
highs and the despairing lows of one of the most compelling
and creative figures in the world of popular culture.
Through these diaries we see Love’s accomplishments, her
mistakes, her history, and her bright future in a whole new
light. From her upbringing in Oregon through her years
living in Japan, New Zealand, and London, from her career
highs with Hole and as a Hollywood leading lady to her
personal heartbreak and struggle, Dirty Blonde is Love laid
bare—a wholly fascinating portrait of a fierce and
insightful woman with an unblinking worldview and a
determination to express herself no matter the cost.
