Guaranteed to make all the usual suspects’ claws come zinging out… ah, shit. It’s just a reprint of an old book, that wasn’t all that great in the first place. Whatever, nevermind.

We love any Nirvana news here at BLURT. We love any Kurt Cobain news here at BLURT. We even love any Courtney Love news here at BLURT. Why? Because those names are ding-dong search engine catnip and we see our web stats skyrocket everytime we mention ‘em. So here we go once again… guarantee: all press release info reported verbatim.
Carlton Books has announced the re-issue of author/journalist Carrie Borzillo’s first book, 2000’s Eyewitness Nirvana: The Day by Day Chronicles, with a new cover, title, and design as Nirvana: In The Words of the People Who Were There on April 1, 2014 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the tragic death of Kurt Cobain.
The reissued book, which comes in a new 5.5 x 8-inch format, is available everywhere books are sold, including Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Borzillo is also selling a limited number of signed copies direct to the fans via her official website, http://carrieborzillo.com/books.html for $35 (U.S.) and $45 (International), including free shipping. A percentage of each autographed book purchased direct from the author will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (www.afsp.org).
“We lost one of the greatest artists of our generation when Kurt Cobain took his life on April 5, 1994 and it’s a sadness that I still deeply feel today. I have very strong feelings about suicide and mental health issues and wanted to do a small part to give back by donating a percentage of the books I sign and sell to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention,” says Borzillo.
Originally released in 2000 as Eyewitness Nirvana: The Day by Day Chronicle, the book has since been released by multiple publishers in a multitude of formats, titles, countries, and languages, including Italian, German, and Spanish. Along with the newest version, Nirvana: In The Words of the People Who Were There, out on April 1, other recent re-issues include the Spanish-language version, Kurt Cobain: La Historia de Nirvana, released on March 18, 2014 by Libros Cúpula and Kurt Cobain: The Nirvana Years, released in October 2013 via Carlton Books. The only truly updated version of the book, however, is the 2003 reissue as Nirvana: The Day to Day Illustrated Journals, which featured more photos and captions and came in the coffee-table size.
Etc. Okay, let’s get on with those meta-tags, kids! And please, make sure you link back to your good ol’ uncle here, okay?
