Courtney Love brings her special brand of crazy to a new e-book about her life

Courtney Love.jpgFor almost a year, Courtney Love spoke to The Fix about the her life, sobriety and fame. Now her confessions and crazy quotes are collected in a new e-book, "Courtney Comes Clean." Here are some choice quotes from the enigma wrapped in mystery, sprinkled with drugs that is Courtney Love.

"When you're used to heroin and cocaine, a few pills doesn't seem like the end of the world. As they say in AA, it's about progress, not perfection. I mean, abstinence is a nice idea, but I don't know if it's right for everyone. Especially for someone who was nursed on a steady diet of Valium and Ritalin from the time I was seven, thanks to my fine mother."...[But] I'm not a junkie anymore. I'm an establishment woman, g***mmit!

"So getting off drugs has made me feel really sexual and tender...like a 16-year-old virgin."

"Stupidly I was getting bundles of blow delivered to my house by a mulatto in a Nissan with a dragging muffler. I was living three blocks from the Beverly Hills Police Department."

"The strange thing is, while the crack screwed me up in a lot of ways, it improved me in certain others. I've never been good with numbers, but when I was on crack I could do math really, really well. I became a f***ing whiz at calculus."ʉ۬

"Shortly after Kurt's death, the lawyer who was representing me called and said, 'Courtney, you have over $7 million coming to you, but you need to give me your Social Security number.' [I couldn't] remember my Social Security Number, so I had to lie and make one up."

"Courtney Comes Clean"  is available on the Nook, the iPad and other e-readers and retails for $2.99. You can order a copy here.
