Musician Patti Smith evokes the New York City of the late 1960s and ‘70s, when she was just beginning her long career. She writes about her friendship with the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, the process of creating art and music, and other (now well-known) people she met, including Bob Dylan and Andy Warhol. Her writing is honest, vividly bringing to life the atmosphere of the time and place – you don’t have to be a fan of her music to enjoy the book.
