A hot mess as only she could make it, Courtney Love’s collection of notes, lyrics, pictures, and scribblings are about as engrossing as they are indicative of the punk princess’s tumultuous rise to-and repeated falls from-the top. The pages of Dirty Blonde are filled to the brim with Love’s rock-star rants and deepest inner thoughts, all pieced together in true DIY fashion: collaged magazine snippets, scanned notebook pages, and enough naked to make even the most extroverted blush. The inner glimpse the book provides into her marriage, celebrity, and role as a mother shine a surprising new light on her public persona, leaving the reader with the image of a true, raw, female rock star the likes of which we haven’t seen of late.
