Dream of life

The best way for me to express my deep affection for everything Patti Smith--her music, her writing, her image, just the idea of her--is this: when I am feeling creatively impotent, anxious and/or disconnected with the world I often remind myself that Patti Smith is alive, breathing, existing somewhere in this world at this very moment. The thought, without fail, helps me breath better.

Patti's incredible memoir about her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe Just Kids is now out in paperback. Affordable and beautifully designed, this is a book you should own and read. It will temper your irony and, maybe, make you breathe better.
