Patti Smith’s first book of prose

Bohemian goddess Patti Smith has just released her first book of prose, a memoir, a-la-Bob Dylan’s Chronicles vol. 1, titled Just Kids which details her remarkable relationship with photographer, Robert Mapplethorpe and the romanticism and mythmaking of their life in New York in the late 60’s/early 70’s.

Here’s a link to a great article in the New York Times – Bohemian Soul Mates in Obscurity.

And with my mind swirling with visions of Patti, I just had to share this clip of her ripping up Horses and Hey Joe… epically raw!
