    'It was the summer that Coltrane died. The summer Jimi Hendrix set his guitar in flames and China exploded the H-bomb. There were riots in Newark and marches against the war in Vietnam. The world was on the brink of change. It was the summer of love. And the summer of a chance encounter that would change the course of my life. It was the summer I met Robert.' Just Kids is the story of two innocents who shed sheltered lives and braved the city in search of art and freedom. In each other Robert Mapplethorpe and Patti Smith ... Show more

Sentimental journey

by Curmudgeon on Oct 20, 2011

An emotional bond described between soul mates unbroken over time, drugs or gender affiliations. Rare under any circumstance, particularly in NY during those days of heady artistic foment.

A Revolutionary Remembers

by Carl S on Sep 29, 2011

Sometimes it's about being in the right place at the right time and Patti Smith certainly was. Now, all these years later, we get to hear the stories too, and great ones they are. 'Just Kids' is chock-full of wonderful anecdotes about the greats and the unknowns who shaped the New York music and art scene in the 60s, and 70's and whose influences on outsider culture in those days reverberate today in the mainstream. Unflinchingly honest, and recalled with crystal clarity, Smith's remarkable memoir of this pivotal period in American art is a well-deserved award winner. Once again, as we move further into the 21st Century, our minds and hearts are stirred by Patti Smith.

Just Wonderful

by GeeMal on May 26, 2011

If the essence of art is simplicity, an expression of feelings and thoughts with no artifice but the clear light of something authentic, "Just Kids" by Patti Smith achieves it, and more. To read it is not to reminisce about days which may have existed only for a very few, but to be drawn into two lives that mattered so much, each to the other, and quickly come to mean as much to us.

Not just kids!

by classiccar on May 19, 2011

They were ahead of their time, they were forever adults throughout their relationship. Great book, in so far, as I was living and attending just about the same places as those two were, Brought back many memories. Sad demise as far as Robert was concerned!
