Boekbeschrijving

Winner of the 2010 Non-Fiction National Book Award Patti Smiths definitive memoir: an evocative, honest and moving coming-of-age story of her extraordinary relationship with the artist Robert Mapplethorpe Sharp, elegiac and finely crafted Sunday Times Terrifically evocative . . . the most spellbinding and diverting portrait of funky-but-chic New York in the late 60s and 70s that any alumnus has committed to print New York Times Render, harrowing, often hilarious Vogue In 1967, a chance meeting between two young people led to a romance and a lifelong friendship that would carry each to international success never dreamed of. the backdrop is Brooklyn, Chelsea Hotel, Maxs Kansas City, Scribners Bookstore, Coney Island, Warhols Factory and the whole city resplendent. Among their friends, literary lights, musicians and artists such as Harry Smith, Bobby Neuwirth, Allen Ginsberg, Sandy Daley, Sam Shepherd, William Burroughs, etc. It was a heightened time politically and culturally; the art and music worlds exploding and colliding. In the midst of all this two kids made a pact to always care for one another. Scrappy, romantic, committed to making art, they prodded and provided each other with faith and confidence during the hungry years--the days of cous-cous and lettuce soup. Just Kids begins as a love story and ends as an elegy. Beautifully written, this is a profound portrait of two young artists, often hungry, sated only by art and experience. And an unforgettable portrait of New York, her rich and poor, hustlers and hellions, those who made it and those whose memory lingers near.
