'This is the truth behind the lies and the hype on one of the late 20th century's biggest alternative icons - and it's no less controversial. From her chaotic childhood, to a rebellious teenage stripping in Taiwan to rock stardom, drug-troubled marriage to motherhood and bloody tragedy, nothing is left out. With over thirty photographs including some not previously published and many from private collections, and with extracts from Courtney Love's letters and journals, this biography is the first no-holds barred account of the woman who looks set to be the modern day Marilyn Monroe.'
