A prelude to fame, Just Kids recounts the friendship of two young
artists--Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe - whose passion fueled
their lifelong pursuit of art.
In 1967, a chance meeting between
two young people led to a romance and a lifelong friendship that would
carry each to international success never dreamed of. The backdrop is
Brooklyn, Chelsea Hotel, Max's Kansas City, Scribner's Bookstore, Coney
Island, Warhol's Factory and the whole city resplendent. Among their
friends, literary lights, musicians and artists such as Harry Smith,
Bobby Neuwirth, Allen Ginsberg, Sandy Daley, Sam Shepherd, William
Burroughs, etc. It was a heightened time politically and culturally; the
art and music worlds exploding and colliding. In the midst of all this
two kids made a pact to always care for one another. Scrappy, romantic,
committed to making art, they prodded and provided each other with faith
and confidence during the hungry years--the days of cous-cous and
lettuce soup.
Just Kids begins as a love story and ends
as an elegy. Beautifully written, this is a profound portrait of two
young artists, often hungry, sated only by art and experience. And an
unforgettable portrait of New York, her rich and poor, hustlers and
hellions, those who made it and those whose memory lingers near.

Patti Smith is a writer, artist and performer. She has recorded ten albums and written five books, and her artwork has been exhibited worldwide. In 2005 she received the Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, the highest grade awarded by the French Republic to eminent artists and writers who have contributed significantly to furthering the arts throughout the world. She lives in New York City.

'The most beautiful, incredible autobiography - it will make you ache for a time and a place that you probably never knew, New York in the 1970s' Nick Hornby 'A sharp, elegiac and finely crafted tribute to their childlike, pre-fame romance, set against the thrilling back drop of New York's countercultural blast' Sunday Times 'Terrifically evocative ... The most spellbinding and diverting portrait of funky-but-chic New York in the late '60s and '70s that any alumnus has committed to print' New York Times 'A tender, harrowing, often hilarious portrait of young lovers forging their paths in an eccentric milieu of Beat poets, Warhol socialites, and transvestites, rock stars and artists ... Much has been written about that time, but Just Kids offers new insight' Vogue
