New York‘s Bennet Marcus caught up with Courtney Love at the New Yorkers for Children gala last night where the two discussed her literary ambitions. She writes poems: poems that appear in publications, sometimes.
She went on to say: “I have to get it together and finish this damn story that The New Yorker, by the way, does not know is coming.” Well they do now!
We thought we’d probe the archives for a quick cross-sampling the kind of audience that will be receiving this story. Below is a list of terms and phrases that the magazine has used to describe Ms. Love, or her work, over the years.
Lets’s see what they think of her:
- “Brash and outspoken” (Profile, 1998)
- “droll, dumb” (Record review, 2004)
- “whom no one would call abstemious” (Book review 2001)
- “lipstick-and-tragedy-smeared” (Talk of the Town, 1995)
- “really does just want to be loved” (Essay, 1992)
Publication chances: middling.
