Courtney Love excites passions, pro and con, everywhere she appears, and the public hunger for details about her life is unrelenting. Now, Poppy Z. Brite, with inside connections no one else has had, tells the full, uncensored story, exposing a side of this pop-culture icon, leader of the alternative band Hole, that has never been revealed before.Love's own journal entries and letters, interviews with friends, and exclusive photos flesh out the whole truth about the girl born Love Michelle Harrison. Here are the true details surrounding the birth of her daughter and Cobain's death; new facts about Love's formative years and time in reform school; and anecdotes from her career as a stripper in Japan, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Brite interviews Robin, Love's old friend from punk Portland with whom she traveled to new-wave England, who has never talked publicly before. Only Poppy Z. Brite, the acclaimed creator of fresh, exotic, literary punk horror fiction who Publishers Weekly called a singularly talented chronicler of her generation", could have written this book -- a celebrity biography that is as outrageous, brutally honest, and uncompromising as its subject.
