Beautifully rendered…
Patti Smith’s beautifully rendered memoir was selected as the 2019 read for One Book, One New York (a city-wide book club). Set in the bohemian glamour of the Chelsea Hotel in the late ’60s, the book chronicles Smith’s loving relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe and their early years as struggling artists.

Description

Patti Smith, known for her musical talent, invites readers into her life’s story, telling of her remarkable relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. She writes of a time long since past, the formative days of New York City and the Chelsea Hotel, primarily during the late '60s and the '70s, during which her and Mapplethorpe shared their lives.

Smith writes a brutally honest and compelling story that leaps between youth, friendship, love, and loss. Bringing her characteristically unique and lyrical-esque qualities to Just Kids that she often portrays in the rest of her work, Smith captivates readers and takes them on a journey of growth.
