Patti Smith - Year of the Monkey

BALTIC Shop

  • Take a road trip with Punk Icon Patti Smith.

    Wandering solo around the Santa Cruz coastline, Smith's memoir is full of self reflection, insight and beautiful poetic writing that will inspire fans and newbies alike.

    Smith melds the Western landscape with her own dreamscape. Taking us from Southern California to the Arizona desert; to a Kentucky farm as the amanuensis of a friend in crisis; to the hospital room of a valued mentor; and by turns to remembered and imagined places - this haunting memoir blends fact and fiction with poetic mastery. The unexpected happens; grief and disillusionment. But as Patti Smith heads toward a new decade in her own life, she offers this balm to the reader: her wisdom, wit, gimlet eye, and above all, a rugged hope of a better world.
