Under the incandescent leadership of Kurt Cobain, Nirvana achieved worldwide fame in 1991 with Nevermind and the iconic "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Though the band released just one more album before Cobain's demons drove him to suicide, Nirvana remains an enduring influence. Now, through interviews with those close to the band, coupled with intensive archival research, this lushly illustrated book captures the triumph and tragedy of Nirvana.
