The book will be out before the end of the year
Courtney Love has set a date for the publishing of her long awaited memoirs.
The former Hole singer, who has previously released the diary entries of her late husband, Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, is planning to unveil her “emotional biography” ‘Dirty Blonde: The Diaries Of Courtney Love’ in November.
Love‘s 288-page book will contain chilhood records, poetry, song lyrics and never before seen photographs, including pictures of Cobain and their daughter Frances Bean.
The singer’s literary agent David Vigliano told MTV News: “Here is a unique visual look into a world that is never captured. It’s a one-of-a-kind memoir of an extraordinary life lived by a unique artist.”
Love‘s entries include a note written soon after Cobain‘s death reminiscing about happier days.
She writes: “Exactly one month ago today was the last time I made love with my husband. I cooked him dinner. We spent four hours in the playroom with Frances. We saw ‘Schindler’s List’. It made us frightened for life and we saw the value of life. Our convictions we defined until 4am and we fell asleep in each other’s arms and woke up that way in the morning.”
Love also reveals her feelings following Cobain‘s attempted overdose in Rome on March 4, 1994 adding: “Rome was a huge cover-up. I see it now. I just didn’t want to see it then. Last night, I re-read the note he left in Rome. It’s so obviously a suicide note, so fucking obvious.”
The book also includes an apology note addressed to both her husband and daughter, written on letterhead from the Sunset Marquis hotel in West Hollywood.
Elsewhere, her memoirs trail events during her childhood and her thoughts on coping with life as a celebrity.
