Kurt Cobain's wild widow comes from a long line of misbehaving mamas!

Yesterday, Seattle Weekly published an article about Courtney Love and her family background, and the books the respective parties are putting out this year. "Courtney has mouthed off about her parents for decades. Having kept mum for years, Courtney's mom, Linda Carroll, an Oregon therapist, just published Her Mother's Daughter: A Memoir of the Mother I Never Knew and of My Daughter, Courtney Love (Doubleday, $24.95). In November, Courtney publishes Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love, the lead fall title for prestigious Farrar Straus Giroux's Faber imprint."

Courtney's own book, which is comprised partly of reproductions of her dairy pages (similar to the Kurt Cobain journals book), is bound to contain a number of stories about her relationship with Cobain.

Hank Harrison, Love's father, is also publishing a book this year: "Hank Harrison, Linda's estranged first husband and Courtney's estranged bio dad, plans to publish his retort, tentatively titled Love Kills: The Assassination of Kurt Cobain (Arkives Press), in Dirty Blonde's publicity slipstream. 'I will prevail in this debate,' Hank insists, promising to deliver his not widely shared views on Cobain's death, a counterbalance to Linda's 'maudlin diatribe,' the identity of Linda's actual father, plus 'dozens of pictures never before seen by anybody.' " All quotes and the picture is courtesy of the Seattle Weekly.
