just kids - patti smith

I read this Patti Smith autobiography while lazing in the sun last week, (amongst other books).  It mainly tells the story of Patti's relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe, and their support for each other as they tried to produce art that would be of significance.  Plenty of name dropping and reverence for past artists, and an enjoyable read if you like music, art, or even just want to know what the New York City scene was like back in the day.
It also makes you want to go out and listen to some of the songs mentioned, or explore some of the artists she name checks, and that is definitely a good thing.
