The struggle of artists uncovered,
This review is from: Just Kids (Paperback)
Patti gives us an interesting insight into what it takes to truly live the life of an artist (both herself and Robert) forsaking almost everything else to create their own art with no knowledge of how the world will receive it.
On the minus side, I found her writing style to be rather lifeless, being mainly a slow and gently descriptive that failed to engage me for much of the work. Also, the constant mention of her encounters with other famous people of the day became rather tiresome and at times appeared like an attempt at the world name dropping record, sometimes as many as 5 per page. This could have been turned into a real virtue if she'd taken the time to give us a small insight into their lives.
