Victoria’s Book Review: Just Kids by Patti Smith

0

Just Kids by Patti Smith focuses on the famous friendship between herself and photographer, Robert Mapplethorpe. The book 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, and a prelude to fame.
