    JUST KIDS starts out as a love story and ends up on Elegy Row. Serving as a Baudelarian salute to New York City during the late sixties and seventies and to its rich and poor, its hustlers and hellions, it makes for a true fable, a portrait of two young artists, Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe, ascending the halcyon daze to fame. Smith's penchant for immortalizing herself this side of the graveyard dog, lets all the struggle and morphing genius connect for a rhythmic ride through that singular time and space. Smith plants herself at the epicenter of a time when the worlds of poetry, rock and roll, art, and sexual politics were colliding and exploding. In this milieu, fueled by their mutual dreams and drives, Smith/Mapplethorpe would prod and provide for one another during the hungry years. And starring the Hotel Chelsea. With b&w photos. A New York Times Bestseller.

    • Published: November 2011
    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.
