Patti Smith’s Nationwide Guide Award–successful memoir, now richly illustrated with new subject material and not-earlier than-noticed photographs
Patti’s Smith’s beautiful prose is generously illustrated on this complete-colour adaptation of her vintage coming-of-age memoir, Just Kids. New York places vividly come to existence the place, as younger artists, Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe met and fell in love: a primary condo in Brooklyn, Occasions Sq. with John and Yoko’s iconic billboard, Max’s Kansas Town, or the gritty fireplace get away of the Resort Chelsea. The strange individuals who handed thru their lives also are pictured: Sam Shepard, Harry Smith, William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg. Together with by no means-earlier than-printed pictures, drawings, and ephemera, this adaptation captures a second in New York whilst the whole thing used to be conceivable. And whilst youngsters seized their destinies as artists and soul buddies on this impressed tale of affection and friendship.
