Product Description

This small, intimate and luminous memoir revisits the most sacred experiences of writer, performer, and visual artist Patti Smith’s early years – with truths so vivid they border on the insurreal. The author entwines her childhood self – and its “clear, unspeakable joy” – with memories both real and envisioned from her twenties on New York City’s MacDougal Street, the street of noir cafes. Completed in Michigan, on Smith’s 45th birthday and originally published in a slim volume from Raymond Foye’s Hanuman Books, twenty years later, New Directions proudly presents this much-augmented ‘magnetic field’, featuring writing that was omitted from the book’s first printing, along with new photographs and illustrations. List of illustrations. 80p.
