While Rolling Stone writer Neil Strauss was researching his upcoming book, ‘Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pick-Up Artists’, about a group of professional Casanovas who teach seminars on the art of seduction, he managed to pick-up Courtney Love. A few days after Strauss interviewed Love for the magazine, the former Hole frontwoman sent him a text message: “Can I stay at yr house? They repo the car and worse. U don’t wanna know. Need to not be alone.” She wound up moving in with Strauss and his cohorts.
