This book belongs on everyone’s nightstand. Patti Smith‘s ‘Just Kids‘ is a tribute to New York in the late 60′s and 70′s, rock music and art. But most importantly it’s an intimate glimpse into the bohemian life of Patti and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe long before they caught the public eye. Two soul mates who vowed to stay together until they were ready to stand strong, alone. Both of them looking for love, artistic expression, money and most of all themselves. This book takes you into the famous Chelsea Hotel where the couple lived for a while next to other emerging artists of that time like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix,.. and into Andy Warhol’s Factory. A treasure of artistic references both in music, literature and political changes. Just Kids is all about love and live.
