Rare Autographed First Edition Book Of Just Kids, A Memoir By Patti Smith

From The Jacket Cover:
It Was The Summer Coltrane Died, The Summer Of Love And Riots, And The Summer When A Chance Encounter In Brooklyn Led Two Young People On A Path Of Art, Devotion And Initiation. Patti Smith Would Evolve As A Poet And Performer, And Robert Mapplethorpe Would Direct His Highly Provocative Style Toward Photography. Bound In Innocence And Enthusiasm, They Traversed The City From Coney Island To Forty-Second Street, And Eventually To The Celebrated Round Table Of Max's Kansas City, Where The Andy Warhol Contingent Held Court. In 1969, The Pair Set Up Camp At The Hotel Chelsea And Soon Entered A Community Of The Famous And Infamous - The Influential Artists Of The Day And The Colorful Fringe. It Was A Time Of Heightened Awareness, When The Worlds Of Poetry, Rock And Roll, Art, And Sexual Politics Were Colliding And Exploding.

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.

Final Price Includes Shipping Within The United States. An Additional Fee Will Be Incurred For All International Shipments.

Donated By Patti Smith
