Format: Paperback
This tiny little book (and it is small, like a thin pack of cards size) is one of my very favourite out of all the ones on my bookshelf!
It consists of prose rather than 'poems'.
It is so well written: little intimate stories from Patti's childhood, it feels like she's sharing her most private and treasured thoughts/fantasies/secrets with you and only you as you read.
Very difficult to put my finger on what exactly makes these simple little tales so transfixing - but I guess if I could do that I could write like it myself! How do you quantify genius?
If you read my other Patti Smith book reviews you'll see I'm no sycophant. I admit I am a huge fan of Patti's music, prose & poetry but if I think it's rubbish I'll say so!
On this occasion though, this book, however small, is GREAT!

A small dream of a book - it's short and you end up reading only a few pages at a time .... just to save
and make it last.

Superb. Patti is an excellent poet. Buy it and be educated. She is not only a song writer. Although she's brilliant there as well.

As ever a thoughtful mind at work in the dirt and the clouds, with living and dying. Very enjoyable read.
