Just Kids

Patti Smith´s book "Just Kids" (Bloomsbury 2010) is her story on the relationship with Robert_Mapplethorpe. They met in New York City in 1967, and became friends, lovers and companions in the struggle to become artists.
She ended up a poet an rock singer, he a photographer, and the story about their ways there, is told in a very sober voice. Even if this is happening in New York, and lots of it in Hotel Chelsea with musicians and all kinds of artists all over the place, there is no gossip! Yes it´s a fight for money, love and fame, but this is a personal story, not a private one.
Why don´t you read it?
