Courtney Love's diary book out October 31

Tomorrow, Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love will be published in the US by Faber & Faber. The book is described as a "multi-textual memoir chronicling the life of one of our most potent pop icons".

From a Newsweek story about the book:

"[The book] inevitably makes you think that Love is trying to keep pace with her husband, whose journals were published (by her) in 2002. There are certainly similarities. They're both full of scribbles, scraps and secrets—Love includes her 1976 rejection letter from the Mickey Mouse Club. But with Love, there's always more than meets the eye.

The intimate items Love reveals —scrawled lyrics, photos, poetry, lists and childhood relics—form a collage of a life spent in pursuit of validation, fueled by her relentless creativity."

And more from the official book description:
"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."
