|NFC News Author Revisits Death of Kurt Cobain in Time Travel Novel|
A new novel entitled Timely Persuasion by Jacob LaCivita has some Kurt Cobain-related chapters. The book is "an anonymous music critic on a quest to save his sister from the relationship that ended her life. After a chance encounter at a bowling alley leaves him with the ability to travel in time, our hero uses his musical knowledge to 'blink' through the years attempting to keep the couple apart by any means necessary."
Along the journey, the Cobain story is re-visited.
"It's one of those defining moments that follows a whole population who came of age listening to Nirvana," says LaCivita. "For me it was such a logical starting off point for the narrator. He has this new power and wants to make an immediate impact. So many characters discover they can travel in time and head straight for 1963 to find Oswald and save Kennedy. I think a new generation might try something equally altruistic yet not quite so grandiose."
You can read the book online. To jump straight to the Cobain-related chapters, visit this link.
