It is the first book of prose written by Patti Smith, who is the legendary American artist. In this book he has included the never seen glimpse of her relationships with the Robert Mapplethorpe, a photographer in her epochal days of the New York City. Even the glimpse of her experiences in the Chelsea Hotel in the late 16 and 17.
She has concluded an honest and moving story of her youthful and friendship, in this book. She has tried to bring the unique, lyrical quality in this book too, same like the rest of her formidable body of work from her influential album of visual art and poetry.
