Patti Smith’s first book of prose, the legendary American artist offers a never-before-seen glimpse of her remarkable relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in the epochal days in the late sixties and seventies.  An honest and moving story of youth and friendship, Smith brings the same unique, lyrical quality to «Just Kids» as she has to the rest of her formidable body of work — from her influential 1975 album «Horses» to her visual art and poetry.

Learnt A Lot
Loved Up

с удивительно теплым чувством прочитала эту книгу о таланте, свободе от всего наносного, молодости и любви. браво, Патти, с еще большим удовольствием теперь слушаю твой альбом Horses с этой супер-фотографией Роберта Мэйплторпа на обложке.

Loved Up

to be an artist was to see what others could not.
It was Harry who settled the etymology of the cruller. It wasn’t French at all, but Dutch: a fluted ring-shaped affair made from choux pastry with a light and airy texture eaten on Shrove Tuesday. They were made with all the eggs, butter, and sugar forbidden at Lent. I declared it the holy doughnut. “Now we know why the doughnut has a hole.”
Nothing is finished until you see it.”
