Come as You Are: The Story of Nirvana is a 1993 book by Michael Azerrad, covering the career of Nirvana from its inception. It was written before the suicide of Nirvana band leader Kurt Cobain and for the book, Azerrad met with the members of the band and conducted extensive interviews about the band and its members' histories.
Following the death of Kurt Cobain, Azerrad wrote a new final chapter for the book's second printing, which was released in the summer of 1994.
Azerrad worked with filmmaker AJ Schnack to use the twenty-five hours of audio interviews that Azerrad had conducted with Cobain for the book as the basis for a documentary on Cobain's life. Titled Kurt Cobain: About a Son, the movie debuted at festivals in 2006.
