A lot has been written about Kurt Cobain’s death. But what do we know about his life?
In this graphic novel, author Gerrit De Bremme tries to find the man behind the myth. And that’s exactly what most of what we know about Cobain seems to be: a myth, an image invented by Kurt himself. It was an image invented to please the world, an image that proved to be fatal.
While investigations into Kurt’s death might be very sensational, his life before fame is much more interesting. Was he really that different from us? Or is there a little bit of Kurdt in all of us?
‘Kurdt’ is more than just a story for Nirvana-fans. It is a condemnation of the pressure put on our shoulders by society.
A sledge-hammer story with a soft spot.
