Riverhead Scores Rights to Rocker Cobain’s Journals

By LJ Staff

Riverhead Books proved triumphant in a $4 million preemptive bid for the
rights to publish a volume derived from the personal papers of rock star Kurt
Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994. The yet untitled volume will be gleaned
from roughly 800 pages of material contained in 23 notebooks sporting his inner
thoughts, song lyrics, and sketches. The entries cover the period after the
formation of the band Nirvana and until just before his death from a
self-inflicted gunshot wound at age 27. Riverhead said the book would be
released later this year.
