About this audiobook

In Just Kids, Patti Smith’s first book of prose, the legendary American artist offers a never-before-seen glimpse of her remarkable relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in the epochal days of New York City and the Chelsea Hotel in the late sixties and seventies. An honest and moving story of youth and friendship, Smith brings the same unique, lyrical quality to Just Kids as she has to the rest of her formidable body of work—from her influential 1975 album Horses to her visual art and poetry.

Editor's Note

Beautifully rendered…

Patti Smith’s beautifully rendered memoir — set in the bohemian glamour of the Chelsea Hotel in the late ’60s — chronicles her loving relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe and their early years as struggling artists.
