“Just Kids is more than a vividly written, detail-rich memoir of Patti Smith's relationship with the young Robert Mapplethorpe. (Although that alone would be plenty to make this a delightful read.) It's also a snapshot of a bygone era in the New York City art and music scene. Highly recommended!”
— Carol Schneck, Schuler Books & Music, Okemos, MI

Description


Just Kids begins as a love story and ends as an elegy. It serves as a salute to New York City during the late sixties and seventies and to its rich and poor, its hustlers and hellions. A true fable, it is a portrait of two young artists ascent, a prelude to fame.
