New York: Ecco, 2010.
The charming, inspiring and often heart-breaking memoir from an artist and musician who 'found herself' in the sixties.
Patti Smith's account of her doomed love affair with Robert Mapplethorpe and their adventures with the bohemian denizens of the Chelsea Hotel are funny and often sad.
She befriends Janis Joplin, Alan Ginsberg and many others, but her real quest is to find her purpose and make art.
A wonderful account of being young and a bit lost.
