New edition of "Heavier Than Heaven" - out now!

A new, updated edition of the definitive Kurt Cobain biography "Heavier Than Heaven" by Charles R. Cross has just been published. Out on Hyperion, the new paperback contains a new preface by the author to mark the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's passing.

It has been twenty years since Kurt Cobain died by his own hand in April 1994. Yet, as acclaimed biographer Charles R. Cross reveals in his new preface to HEAVIER THAN HEAVEN, Cobain's death often feels like a personal loss even to fans born years after. The lasting influence of Cobain's artistic genius makes HEAVIER THAN HEAVEN more relevant now than ever.

Originally published in 2001 and re-released now to coincide with the anniversary, HEAVIER THAN HEAVEN reveals this often misunderstood man who skillfully sought fame, yet detested his own popularity. Cross conducted more than 400 one-on-one interviews; combed through every police and forensic report; and spent three days in isolation with duffel bags full of Cobain's and Courtney Love's intimate diaries, letters, and art. This release also coincides with Cross’s new book Here We Are Now: The Lasting Impact of Kurt Cobain (It Books; Hardcover; 3/18/14), a first-person account and analysis of Cobain's life, music, and impact on popular culture.
