looked at the synopsis for this one when it won the National Book Award and found I just wasn't all that interested in it. I didn't recognize Patti Smith's name at all and the only thing I knew about ... Read full review

I read this book because it won the National Book Award for nonfiction in 2010. It tells of the weird life the author lived in New York from 1965 till 1980. She was connected with Robert Mapplethorpe ... Read full review

Smith has led an interesting life, but she's not much of a writer. While I was reading her book, her photography was on display at the Detroit Institute of Art and I went to the exhibit. She is no better a photographer than writer. Not interested enough to check out her music. Read full review
